Humanities at ASU

Humanities at ASU: The human adventure across time and place

The humanities study the past and present of diverse cultures in order to create a more just and humane future. Languages, literature, history, philosophy, film and media, linguistics, and creative writing are just some of the disciplines the humanities encompass.

Arizona State University students and scholars, from the first-year student setting foot on campus for the first time to the distinguished faculty member with worldwide eminence, come together in and out of the classroom to understand our world and to create new knowledge about the peoples and cultures inhabiting the Earth. The humanities flourish within varied academic programs at the university, from the life sciences, law, media, arts and engineering to ASU’s distinguished humanities departments, schools and research centers.

Come see some of what humanists at ASU do and the transdisciplinary research, education and community service that underpins ASU — a New American University.
