Social sciences are scholarly disciplines studying human society and individual relationships in and to society. The field includes study areas such as sociology, psychology, anthropology, economics, political science and history. Social science research is often eclectic; therefore practitioners use various methodologies combining quantitative and qualitative research techniques.
