College of Integrative Sciences and Arts
Arizona State University's College of Integrative Sciences and Arts develops master learners, interdisciplinarians and integrative solutions-makers who are future-ready, through degree programs that emphasize innovative teaching and applied, often project-based, learning.
Committed to access, the college works to meet students where they are in their educational journey and geographically. We are the home college for more than 6,700 undergraduate majors enrolled in our degree programs — at ASU's Polytechnic, Downtown Phoenix, Tempe, Lake Havasu, and ASU Online campuses as well as in partnership programs onsite at Eastern Arizona College, Arizona Western College, Central Arizona College, Cochise College, Pima Community College and Yavapai College; more than 400 graduate students are enrolled in our programs at ASU's Tempe and Polytechnic campuses.
The college has three schools:
- School of Applied Professional Studies

Humanities-centric undergraduate degrees include communication; English; general studies; history; interdisciplinary studies; liberal studies; organizational leadership; political science; science, technology and society and technical communication. The college also offers majors in applied biological sciences, applied mathematics, applied physics, and applied quantitative science.
The college is also home to Writers’ Studio, an innovative option for first-year composition at ASU Downtown Phoenix campus and online. Based on award-winning models for composition, it helps students learn to compose in different kinds of electronic environments.
Some of our community efforts include:
The Counselor Training Center, the community counseling clinic for the Counseling and Counseling Psychology graduate degree programs. The center provides confidential counseling services for ASU students, staff, and faculty as well as the larger community.
The Project for Writing and Recording Family History, established at the Polytechnic campus, offers courses and community workshops to promote writing, researching, and publishing family histories. It connects ASU with community members of all ages in these outreach efforts.
