Social Studies, at its most basic, is the study of how people interact with the world around them. The state of Georgia requires courses that include content from history, geography, political science and economics.  Through this curriculum, students are provided with a basic background knowledge and the critical thinking skills that are necessary to become effective and productive citizens.

Griffin High School also provides a variety of elective courses in law, history, military history, psychology and Advanced Placement courses for those students who are interested in pursuing various disciplines of the Social Studies to a greater depth.
