The social sciences impact almost every aspect of society. Social scientists build our collective knowledge in areas including society’s institutions and structures, its histories and its people.

There is a broad range of social science disciplines represented by the Academy, including:

  • Society, Politics and Culture (including sociology, anthropology, geography, Indigenous studies, linguistics and other fields)
  • Business and Economics (including commerce, management, tourism and accounting)
  • History, Philosophy and Law
  • Education, Psychology and Public Health
