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.
Research conducted by the Healthy Lifestyles Research Center in the College of Health Solutions determines how daily lifestyle habits and actions impact both short- and long-term health, chronic disease risk and the quality of life.
The center's laboratory is located in the state-of-the-art Arizona Biomedical Collaborative Building in downtown Phoenix. Studies focus on exercise and wellness, nutrition and diet, behaviors associated with lifetyle choices and the social assessment of chronic disease prevention.
