What types of Math is Used in Social Science?

  1. Jun 11, 2013 #1
    Hello everyone - I'm currently a pre-college, soon-to-be uni freshman next academic year.

    I'm taking this summer to look into various majors and job prospects for each one and am looking into what the social sciences have to offer.

    However, I'm curious what types and what levels of math are used in the social sciences?

    I greatly appreciate people's insights. Thanks very much.

    You'd definitely need Statistics (atleast i year long sequence at my university) beyond that it depends on what area of the social sciences you're working in. Social networks are being analyzed using graph theory and what not.

    This is as much as I know. Hope it helps
