Social Science Research Areas and Disciplines

Research in social sciences is varied and diverse, ranging from economics, political science, anthropology, criminology, sociology, and psychology. Most researchers focus on a specific branch of social sciences (for example, see the articles on anthropology, sociology, and psychology) and work in collaboration with those in other related fields.

Social scientists will commonly combine quantitative and qualitative approaches when designing research studies. Questionnaires, field-based data collection, archival database information, and lab-based data collections are some of the techniques used. Other social scientists emphasize the subjective nature of research. This includes studies into social theory (examination and critiquing of society and culture), postmodernism (point of departure for works of literature, drama, architecture, cinema, and design), social constructionism (knowledge that consider how social phenomena develop in social contexts), and phronetic social science (contemporary interpretation of practical judgment, common sense, and prudence).
