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.
Decision Center for a Desert City (DCDC) is a research center in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability funded by the National Science Foundation to advance decision-making under conditions of deep uncertainty.
With focus areas on water, energy, and population growth, the integrated projects in DCDC have advanced knowledge on regional climate and land-use change, the capacity of institutions and governance to operate sustainably, the creation of models and scenarios of the biophysical and socioeconomic drivers of water systems, and the support of a transition strategy for the cities in the Colorado River Basin.
