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.
