Social

Social sciences are all about how society works. Social scientists examine institutions like the government, the economy, and family, along with what drives human behavior. Social science includes many fields like psychology, economics, history, sociology, political science, and philosophy.

What is Social Science?

Social science is the branch of science devoted to the study of human societies and the relationships. Social science differs from natural science in that it examines the human-constructed world rather than the physical world. Social science research utilizes quantitative and scientific methods. For example, economists rely on statistics and forecasting to understand trends, while political scientists use surveys and polling to track political changes.
