What will I learn in a social science degree or training program?

The social sciences are an attempt to use the techniques of the pure sciences to explain and understand human behavior. There's a little bit of everything in such a degree or training course therefore. Certainly, you'll learn some statistics because so much of social science is based upon watching what people do, collecting the data and then checking it. There's also some psychology, some economics, sociology itself, perhaps some anthropology as well. A social science degree or training program might in fact be one you'll find fascinating: what could be more interesting than trying to find out the truth about human beings, what is it that we actually do and why?

What will a social science degree or training program qualify me to do?

A social science degree or training program is a good foundation for a number of different careers. Knowing what makes people work is obviously useful in almost every job. But you will also be able to do further training programs or perhaps degrees to become a social scientists yourself. This involves observing people and collecting the information then using those techniques you've learned to make sense of it all: why do people do what they do? There are a number of different specialties here, like anthropologist (average earnings $44,000), geographer ($59,000), historian ($44,500) and sociologist ($59,000). Which one you become depends upon which part of the basic training you like the most.
