Social Sciences

Social Science

The term Social Sciences describes the broad collection of subjects relating to the study of human society and of social relationships. We study social sciences because social phenomena – the study of people, societies, behaviours and the lives that surround us – affect us in profound ways. Social scientists help us imagine alternative futures, open up debate and give us a say in shaping all our futures. Studying social sciences qualifications encourages us to ask questions and challenge assumptions about the world we live in.
