Online Social Sciences Degrees and Careers


From the real life Dr. Leakey, a palaeoanthropologist who discovered a homo erectus skull in 1975 (in Africa) to the fictional Indiana Jones who discovered the Ark of the Covenant, anthropology and other social sciences are steeped in human mystery. Social scientists as a group include

  • Archaeologists
  • Geographers
  • Historians
  • Anthropologists

 

Social scientists study all aspects of society, from past events to modern behavior. Archaeologists study the material evidence left behind by earlier mankind. Anthropologists study human origins, development and behavior. Historians research and analyze the past.

Education and Career Opportunities in Social Sciences

There are several opportunities for social sciences jobs open to those who hold bachelor's degrees. Generally a bachelor's from social sciences degree programs is a start for social sciences jobs such as writer or assistant. Graduates from social sciences degree programs with master's generally are qualified to work in universities.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts social sciences jobs should continue to grow much faster than average, but the number of jobs available varies by the social sciences specialty. In 2009, mean annual wages for archaeologists was $70,606, historians made $87,730 and geographers made $79,223, though wages vary across the country and in some areas wages are higher. In 2009, the mean annual wage for social scientists in general was $73,450.
