Difference between history and social history?Watch this thread
Sociology applies theories to help us understand what society is and how it functions.
To sum up a social historian will only ever analyse events in a social context. A historian will combine different approaches to analyse events.
Straight history is a good option if you are interested in studying all aspects of history. Social history will appeal to you if you are only interested in studying society and would not like to study other types of history.
Hey, thanks for replying! Do you know how social history differs from a history degree?
There are courses tailored to anthropological and social history or economic and social history. I think it's a way of understanding historical events through a certain lens basically.
