The study of Social Science helps to ex­plain how society works, exploring every­thing from the triggers of eco­nomic growth and causes of unemploy­ment to what makes people happy.

This infor­mation is vital and can be used for many pur­poses. Among other things, it helps to shape cor­porate strate­gies and govern­ment policies.
