I have an undergraduate degree in Modern European History, with a specialty in the social history of 19th century France. For my work, I apply microeconomics and do lots of survey work. I have developed my own applications of statistics in the field of valuation. I also learned decision-making during graduate school and can help with that, as well. Social studies includes many different disciplines. I find that the most useful way to understand what's going on is to become familiar with more of these disciplines, to understand the methodologies that each discipline employs, and to look for confirmations from at least three disciplines to draw the correct conclusions. In many social studies curricula, the number of disciplines employed is too limited. It's ultimately all about people, and you should have a wonderful time learning in the process.
