What is Social Science?

Social science is the study of cultural and social influences on human behaviors and the overall functioning of society. Once considered behavioral science, social science evaluates social groups, power, government and social systems, individuals and interactions, ethnicities, and regional characteristics that help to define a society. The branches of this field include subjects like anthropology, economics, ethnic studies, gender studies, history, human geography, linguistics, political science, sociology, and social psychology. Social science developed as a scientific field around the 18th century although the intricacies of society were being studied centuries before it became an academic focus.
