A course offers a comprehensive study of any number of subjects, giving its students an academically challenging experience. Commitment for completion varies by institution and delivery method, with courses taking anywhere from several months to several years to complete.

What is a course in social science? Throughout a social science course, students can engage with materials presenting the interactions of individuals with each other according to societal structure. Contents may specifically deal with these relationships within the fields of economics, anthropology, psychology, political science, and sociology. The global community and international relations may also be covered through a social science course. Subtopics could include gender issues, education, demographic constructs, and legal issues.

A background in social science can equip students for success. Self-awareness aids in identifying strengths and weaknesses with both individual and team tasks, and project management aptitude can ensure task completion. Information management skills are necessary in many jobs, highlighting the processing and reasoning abilities of social science students. All of these skills could positively impact an employee’s performance and salary.

Social science courses are available in many delivery formats, with online institutions sometimes presenting the most cost-effective option. However, the difference between each program will need to be evaluated individually as will each institution for the overall cost of attendance.

Students pursuing a social science interest may find several job fields suited to their skills. Political scientists investigate political concerns, while an economist studies the financial landscape of society to learn what is impacting growth. Industrial-organizational psychologists can take principles derived from social science studies and apply them to the working environments of training or human resources. Urban or regional planners also use social science knowledge to assist in the development of communities and people groups.

In keeping with the appreciation for diversity promoted within a course in social science, students across the globe have access to increasing their understanding of social structures in either online or in-person settings.

Vienna is teeming with people from around the world who have made this city their home. Situated at the center of Europe and rich in culture, this is a place where people from all walks of life thrive. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is also a city where the study of society has a long history and where modern psychology claims its birthplace. Many prominent thinkers made Vienna their home—Alfred Adler, Max Wertheimer, Helene Deutsch, Erwin Ringel, Viktor Frankl (who taught at IES Abroad), and, of course, Sigmund Freud. -
