What is the significance of research in social and business science? Significance of Research in Social and Business SciencesAccording to a famous Hudson Maxim, "All progress is born of inquiry. Doubt is often better than overconfidence, for it… leads to inquiry, and inquiry leads to invention" A history of England. A related critique of interpretive social inquiry leveled by naturalists is the charge of particularism. This criticism says that interpretive social inquiry would appear to produce merely a collection of particularistic interpretive accounts of different cultures. That is, an interpretive approach would seem to limit social science’s ability to explain similar kinds of events and phenomena that occur in different cultures Representing Youth: Methodological Issues in Critical Youth Studies. Historical or to rewrite new findings on what ocured in the past, the second is propositive or to "mantain a record of the history of personn, actions, relationships between person and events, for further generations of investigators".-

everyone can married with every person who wants.
In this case the criminal laws exists, but the civil laws not consider the vital record of "birth certificate" as a "public record of genealogy".
You can even marry to your mom if you like it.

The example above presumed one-in, one-out. But what if I want to increase the size of my squad through building new areas of specialism, or put together an entirely new School or Research Group? This might present more of a problem, because it’ll take much longer for me to see any REF benefits in exchange for my investment. However, rival managers would argue that the old rules meant I could do an academic-Chelsea or academic-Manchester City, and just buy all those REF benefits straight away Meta-Analytic Procedures for Social Research (Applied Social Research Methods). 00:00:10 People get into the social sciences field because they want to help people. 00:00:14 They want to see change in people’s lives in a positive way that is important to the person. 00:00:22 Across the country, there’s an increasing need for people with specialized education in human services, counseling, and psychology. 00:00:29 University of Phoenix College of Social Sciences is preparing students for a variety of helping professions. 00:00:37 Human services is a broad foundation for the helping community. 00:00:43 A human services worker could be a program coordinator, a case manager. 00:00:48 That person could go into education. 00:00:50 They can work in the school systems. 00:00:52 They can work in a healthcare facility, nonprofit. 00:00:55 They could even work in government. 00:00:57 Disaster relief is huge and very important. 00:01:00 A person with a human services degree can do any nurse of things in that situation. 00:01:04 A gerontology aid would usually work with the senior population. 00:01:08 They may help with mental health. 00:01:10 There may be issues where the person is suffering dementia. 00:01:14 What we’re finding is, because of the economy, more people are needing services in every area. 00:01:21 That calls for more workers. 00:01:23 That is an opportunity for our students because the demand is growing. 00:01:28 In addition to the variety of career paths available to those interested in human services, there are a growing number of opportunities in counseling. 00:01:37 I find that the biggest things with the students at University of Phoenix program is the excitement, that they are excited about helping people. 00:01:44 The University of Phoenix prepares the students incredibly well. 00:01:47 Then we have an excellent counseling center on a couple of our campuses. 00:01:50 That is wonderful opportunity to learn in a very structured environment. 00:01:55 The role of a counselor is just to first listen to where the client is at, to find the barriers, and then find ways to help remove them. 00:02:02 There’s a number of populations that could benefit from counseling. 00:02:05 Young children as early as four or five years old. 00:02:08 Moving completely up through the developmental lifespan, gerontology is a huge field now. 00:02:13 Working with military, it’s estimated that 25 percent of the returning soldiers are gonna have some form of PTSD, and we have limited resources to help them. 00:02:22 Counselors can do a great deal of service for people who have addiction problems, to make sure that they’re working with outside resources, physicians, sponsors if they’re in a 12-step AA program. 00:02:33 The education that students receive at University of Phoenix helps prepare them to be able to go out and practice in the community. 00:02:39 I think we give them way more than many schools, in terms of preparation. 00:02:44 Like human services and counseling, there are a range of career opportunities open to people with undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, in both the private and public sectors. 00:02:54 Entering the field of psychology, even at the bachelor’s level, there are many opportunities beyond what typically people think of as just psychotherapy or working with clients. 00:03:07 There are intrinsic rewards in both the public and the private sector. 00:03:11 I’ve had students, for instance, that work for the Department of Children and Family Services. 00:03:16 That’s a really difficult position, but really highly rewarding. 00:03:21 Another avenue is to work in the classroom as a teacher’s aid working in research as a research assistant or a psych tech. 00:03:31 In the private sector, human resources, for instance, would be another avenue. 00:03:35 Marketing, understanding human behavior using those skills to impact marketing. 00:03:41 The University of Phoenix College of Social Sciences prepares students for a variety of rewarding careers. 00:03:48 Regardless of which career path a University of Phoenix student chooses—human services, counseling, or psychology—the College of Social Sciences and its faculty are committed to helping prepare every student with the education and skills they need to help them achieve their goals. 00:04:05 The University of Phoenix College of Social Sciences allows me to help people by giving to my students what I have learned, and allowing them to take it to their communities and continue that legacy of helping Clinical Data-Mining: Integrating Practice and Research (Pocket Guide to Social Work Research Methods).
