Explanation:
It depends on the level. "Social studies" at an elementary/secondary school level would be "estudios sociales", meaning geography, history, a bit of knowledge of culture, etc.etc.
Good luck,

Educación Cívica


Explanation:
When I went to school in Mexico we didn't have anything like Social Studies as a class. In talking to my husband who did go to school here I find that it is exactly the same as Civics and this is how you'd describe Civics class in Spanish. (Civics is just a High School word for Social Studies.) Hope this helps you out! Good luck!

Estudios Sociales


Explanation:
If this is an elementary, middle or high school course then "Estudios Sociales" is the correct term.
Science Class - Clase de Ciencia
Math Class - Clase de Matemática
English Class - Clase de Inglés

...and so on. These are the normal elementary and middle school classes.
