While some of these subjects are directly linked to the society in general, others deal with specific aspects of the society. Social Science courses, therefore, aim to impart an education that touches upon contemporary social, political and economical issues prevailing in the society.

Social Science courses are divided into different categories depending on the specialization it offers. They include the following:
• Anthropology
• Archaeology
• Criminology
• Development Studies
• Economics
• Education
• Geography
• History
• Law
• Linguistics
• Political Science
• Sociology
• International Relations
• Communications
