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.
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.
