Social studies is the name of a course or set of courses taught in primary and secondary schools or elementary, middle, and high schools, and at tertiary schools around the world.

At primary school, social studies is usually about the local community and family. By middle and high school, social studies includes many subjects about past and current human behavior and interactions. Usually, social studies taught in middle and high school is in the form of history, civics, economics and geography.

Social studies is a little different than social science, though many of the social sciences are covered in social studies.
