In simple terms, studies in Social Sciences are the scientific study of human social behavior and its origins. This would include developmental, organizational, and institutional aspects of human conduct. Social Sciences’ typical focus includes the concepts of social stratification and class, culture, deviance, psychology, gender and sexuality, law, race and ethnicity, religion, social mobility, and secularization. As all aspects of human activity are affected by the interaction between the agency of the individual and social structure, sociology has widened its lens to other subjects, such as economics, environmental sociology, health, the internet, medical, military and penal institutions, political economy, and the inferences of social activity and scientific knowledge.
