What is Social Science?
Social Science, broadly speaking, provides an understanding of how the world works using social and behavioural explanations.
In contrast to the natural sciences (biology, chemistry, physics) which focus primarily on natural phenomena (stem cells, molecules, light waves), the subject of social science is society itself. Social scientists use empirical research methods to investigate all sorts of interpersonal and intrapersonal behaviour, from why people fall in love to why people commit crimes. It is an exciting field of study that enables governments and organizations to gain insight into how people behave.
