Sociology is in fact a social science so would that be lying? Do you think it’ll make a difference whether it says sociology or social science? Does social science sound better than sociology?
Can I list my sociology degree on my resume as a bachelors in Social Science instead to make it sound better?

Answer by Clueless but looking!
Bachelors degrees come in various content areas, for example: a B.A. is a Bachelor of Arts. For example, you can obtain a B.A. in Architecture, or B.A. in Education, or a B.A. in Sociology.
B.S. stands for a Bachelor in Science. A B.F.A is a Bachelor of Fine Arts.
Each degree is issued with a standard notation. This is how you can honestly represent it on a resume.
If you earned a Bachelor of Arts IN Sociology, you can note it:
B.A. in Sociology
Bachelor of Arts: Sociology
But each title is designated and picked for a reason at your school. I would stay consistent with your school’s usage of the terms, since they have to meet certain requirements by state law in order to name it specific things. It’s possible that a Social Science degree might vary from a Sociology degree per state law.
