What is an online course in social sciences? The broad field of social science is devoted to studying human society, interaction and decision-making. There are several individual and more specialized areas of study that make up the field of social sciences, including anthropology, economics and psychology. Some courses are specific to one field while others are more comprehensive and can provide helpful knowledge about multiple areas of study.

Almost all courses in social science require you to do research studies involving data analysis. This not only helps you gain knowledge, but improves your critical-thinking skills. Most employers today covet employees with that specific skill set because they tend to make better decisions.

Social science courses can range widely in cost. Some of the things that determine the tuition for a course may include factors like the school offering the course, the type of social science being studied and the length of the course.

Those who specialize in economics can work in roles such as management consultant, investment advisor and analytics manager. Other social science professionals work as criminal investigators, geospatial analysts and employee relations specialists.
