What is a course in social sciences? Regardless of the specific field of study, students who take a course in social sciences can expect to focus on the scientific method and theory. Most courses in the social sciences are research based, building knowledge from established theories and pushing the boundaries of what is already known through additional research. Courses in social science vary widely depending on the field. Students interested in psychology can expect to take courses in developmental, clinical, social, and cognitive psychology. Sociology courses focus on social groups and interactions. Those studying anthropology explore the holistic human experience, including the cultural, economic, and historical components of a society.

Students who take a course in one of the social sciences gain a deeper understanding of the social and cultural constructs that make up human experience. Because studying social sciences teaches the scientific method, it also offers a foundation for conducting future research.
