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.
