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.
Researchers leading PlanetWorks strive to design and plan the future of planet Earth understanding the role of human actions on the physical environment. Overarching programs include studying the influence of human activities, risk innovation and decision-making on the global climate, the water cycle and biogeography.
PlanetWorks is a network of ASU academic units, centers and individual faculty with a shared vision, building and sustaining a “more than the sum of parts” platform as a way to secure resources, coordinate activities and project impact in ways that none of us can do alone.
