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
