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 Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions is made up of four schools and more than 20 research centers—all with a shared goal of advancing research and discovery of public value, and furthering the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities that we serve.
Our research is use-inspired, integrating the theoretical and the applied approaches to find solutions to complex issues of urban living and governance. Our unique structure—with expertise across a broad range of areas—complements our entrepreneurial approach. We are deeply embedded in the community forging partnerships to take on projects that have local, national and international impact.
