    The OP made himself/herself look like a tool by putting an apostrophe in the title.

    Some of the research methods in social sciences are scientific in approach. Applied research in economics is quantitative and scientific in nature just like physical sciences would be.

    It's clear that you have used very scientific Baconian methods to determine this fact....

    This thread is a neg buffet. To save your rep (if you care), I think you should close it.

    I'm not saying this because I'm applying for psychology, but I don't think you can give an opinion on it as you have never studied psychology or sociology yourself.

    So's every subject at that level though. GCSE Add Maths and A2 Maths are virtually indistinguishable, for instance.

    The only subjects that aren't overly "mickey mouse" at that stage are languages or art, given the amount of work both require.

    Yes but you can't judge it just from doing it at AS level. A2 adds a little more science to it, though not as much as I would like, but at degree level the course (so I'm led to believe) contains a lot more science.

    Thanks. Nice use of the word "******" there - that's not offensive at all.
    Hehehee Like someone else said - This is TSR.
    You'll also see alot of completely bull**** threads, ridiculous generalising, tl;dr's, and a lot of people who mistake their own opinion for fact.

    Personally I'm finding my Social Sciencey degree scientific enough for my humanities based brain.


    This thread is now about Panda dogs!



    Is it a dog, is it a panda? Only Science can tell us the answers.

    you foolish people. when they say something is a 'social science' they don't mean that it is a positivist science like physics. its a term that has stuck to sociology and psychology over the years. they call them sciences because they are inquiries into human affairs.

    Seriously, Psychology and sociology are not a science, standing around outside Mcdonalds with a clip board asking about dreams is so unscientific.
    How do you define a science?

    Yeah, then my degree's definitely out. I'm outnumbered by girls. Something like 40 odd girls to 4 guys.
