What’s the Meaning of Social Science?

Here is the real definition of Social science.

Social science is any discipline or branch of science that deals majorly with human behaviour in its social and cultural aspects. (Britannica)

Social Science can also be defined as a branch of science that deals with the institutions and functioning of human society, including the interpersonal relationships of individuals as members of society. (Merriam-webster)

Investopedia went further to define Social Science as a group of academic disciplines, which focus mainly on examining society and how people interact and develop as a culture.

Take note that Social science as a field of study is separate from the natural sciences because Natural sciences cover topics such as physics and chemistry. However, this is different from Social Science.

Final Conclusion

Please take note that the courses which are above are pulled from the official JAMB brochure. The social science courses and management courses were added together, to make this list.

The reason why I decided to add the Social Science courses and Management courses together here, is because some schools offer the same course as management science, while some other school offers the same course as social science.
