Social Studies - 15. What are acceptable equivalencies for the Contemporary World Problems (CWP) credit?
WAC 180-51-210 states, "One-half credit shall be required in contemporary world history, geography, and problems. Courses in economics, sociology, civics (through the Class of 2023), political science, international relations, or related courses with emphasis on contemporary problems may be accepted as equivalencies."
The CWP course work should be contemporary geography and contemporary world problems. Typically, contemporary history covers the period since World War II. Please refer to the Washington State K-12 Social Studies Learning Standards for more information.
