Do you understand what social science is? It appears not.

Perhaps here is a good start for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_sciences
Branches of Social Science:
# 2.1 Anthropology
# 2.2 Economics
# 2.3 Education
# 2.4 Geography
# 2.5 History
# 2.6 Law
# 2.7 Linguistics
# 2.8 Political science

Are you saying that none of the above contain any theories or the like? Or are you just curious if there are any theories?

I'm asking if their are any fundemental theorems of social science.

Not sure if the term "theorem" is used, but here's an example of a broad "theory".

"Marxist theory contends that socialism is just a transitional stage on the road to communism"
(from wikipedia, referenced)

Now surely you understand one can't write down a concise mathematical proof of this. I suspect the word "hypothesis" would be more appropriate to social studies.
