ASU social sciences researchers, educators and students work to answer big questions about people, communities, our environment.
Science is only as good as it is translated into people's lives. At ASU, the social sciences provide knowledge, insight and skills to unite and catalyze humanities and natural sciences.
Through pursing the values of access, excellence and inclusion, ASU offers students pathways to thrive and fulfill their academic potential and change their lives, the lives of their families and community.
The social sciences is key in decision-making, how to better develop policy and sculpt interventions that help improve human outcomes.
The Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity leads research on the commonalities of sociality found in phenomena as diverse as gene networks, slime molds, ant colonies, corporations and cities.
The center enables its members to collaborate in research and educational programs, and to involve like-minded researchers from other institutions in these collaborations.
We apply innovative concepts and methods of complex adaptive systems science to generate new insights about the emergence, evolution and function of social systems and their interactions with the biophysical environment. Advancing this integrative science provides a deeper understanding of the connections between living systems and societies.
