Social Sciences

Social science is a broad categorisation for disciplines that study human society and social relationships. It covers a plurality of fields outside the natural sciences and focuses on topics that are related to human behaviour, culture, (oxford comma for consistency with other content) and society. Social Science include disciplines like Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology, Economics, Gender & Sexuality Studies, International Relations, Cognitive Sciences, Archaeology, Criminology, European Studies, Public Policy, Ethnic Studies, Organisational Behaviour, Geography, and Political Science.

Social Science subjects combine theory and research. It is a branch of science that focuses on different aspects of human society and explores the interpersonal relationship of individuals as members of society which leads to the development of a culture (controversial and erroneous). There are a lot of career opportunities available for Social Science students right after graduation. Social Science is very important today since it can help improve society in many ways significantly by helping to better understand human beings as individuals as well as members of society.
