"Social studies" is a term usually used in middle school in the USA, basically for teachers of students ages 11-14.  My 12-year-old studies social studies in 6th grade.

In high school and college the term used is History professor, or Geography/History professor.

I had a social studies teacher in High School.
We learned mostly about current events - things that were going on at the moment.

But the Wikipedia says the following:

At the elementary school level, social studies generally focuses first on the local community and family. By middle and high school, the social studies curriculum becomes more discipline-based and content-specific. It includes various fields which involve past and current human behavior and interactions, such as sociology, history, political science, economics, religion, geography, psychology, anthropology, and civics.


In Europe, a person has to have a pretty high degree to be called a professor.
Otherwise we call them teachers.

In many Spanish speaking countries the word "profesor" is used to mean teacher (remember profe55 from Argentina?). In the States professor is used in schools of higher learning (colleges and universities). So in a way it can be a false cognate.

edrodmedina - and to teach higher education - you need a higher degree.

Hi all,
I am a Social Studies teacher - at the high schoool level, and for the most part the Wikipedia entry is correct although slightly out-of-date since at the elementary level, at least in Maryland, the curriculum is broadly "me and my world." This includes everything from state and national history and current events to the study of ancient and/or foreign cultures.
 
Masters and Phd.s at the elementary and secondary level are usually - M.Ed. or Phd.Ed while those at the college or university level are usually in a specific discipline with an even more targeted area of reseach. In the school where I teach, except for those on staff that have less than 5 years of teaching, about 8, all have a Master īs or 45 graduate hours. Nine have Phd.s with 3 more working towards it. The teaching staff numbers about 150.
 
I hope this doesn īt sound too much like a lecture......but then again I īm a teacher
