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.
The Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) provides support for research and training in the social sciences through faculty seed grants, high profile speakers, training workshops, a graduate student poster contest, and graduate and undergraduate certificates in social science research methods.
The institute is directed by H. Russell Bernard, who is a professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.
