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.
Founded in 2016, the Urban Research Climate Center integrates social and physical sciences to develop and test urban design and management policies to enhance the productivity, health and sustainability of urban populations. Topical areas include extreme heat, air quality, flooding and drought, urban ecology and infrastructure services for energy, water and transportation.
The center is a partnership between the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, and the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.
