[外文]Although economics and sociology are widely acknowledged as two different disciplines, they are closely related to each other and spring from the same source. Submerging in economics in my undergraduate education, the more I study statistics and economics, the more I feel intrinsic need to acquire sociological enlightenment to further and deepen my understanding of the economy as well as the whole society.
As a matter of fact, I find economic theories and methods can only explain the economic phenomenonin the view of value and quantity under quite a few strict hypotheses. Nonetheless, practical situations cannot be simplified and hypothesized. Hence, the feasibility and effectiveness of man-made adjustment of economic variables is questionable to some extent. By contrast, the social researchers draw on a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques, considering historic, cultural,psychological and various factors intertwined with each other. Consequently, the theoretical and ideological extrapolation of social science makes it an indispensible remedy to the framework of economics. As a student longing for knowledge, I am intoxicated with social science and expect to unfold the mystery of society.
To further ground myself in the field of social science, I tried to catch every opportunity to acquire knowledge of social science. I took a host of relevant courses, such as Principles of Sociology,Contemporary International Economy and Politics, Philosophy, Public Relations, Society and Interpersonal Connection, Introduction to Applied Ethics, etc. Through my industrious effort, all the courses above-mentioned are accomplished with remarkable results.
