Is economics a social science?

Answer: There is a very good reason why economics is offered both as an art major and a science major in most universities and colleges. Economics is a social science. Economists don’t observe and study the fundamentals of the natural world; they instead attempt to examine and quantify the fundamentals of society and of human behavior. Economists examine life not through a microscope, but through personal observation and well-crafted questionnaires.
