School of Human Evolution and Social Change

In ASU's School of Human Evolution and Social Change, faculty members and students seek to understand the origins and implications of our human uniqueness – such as culture, cooperation and complexity.

The school's research and teaching efforts combine the skills and perspectives of the largest anthropology and global health program in the nation with smaller, hand-crafted pursuits in museum studies, environmental social science and applied math.

Collaborations locally, nationally and internationally are helping to redefine social science as key to solving our world's most pressing and immediate human challenges – like disease, conflict and declining resources.
