Igniting intellectual inquiry to better the world

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University serves as an incubator for humanities scholarship and research through an interdisciplinary lens. We transform traditional spaces of experimentation and inquiry by integrating the creativity of humanities scholars alongside natural and social scientists. By mixing different areas of expertise, we can collaborate and create innovative techniques to solve global crises such as food instability and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.  

We believe society’s survival will rely on transformative innovations created by the most capable of thinkers who can adapt, concur obstacles and come out ahead. Our 200+ undergraduate and graduate degrees housed in 22 schools and departments teach our scholars how to become master learners. Whether they’re solving global health problems or preserving historic buildings around the world, our scholars are on a constant journey to create new knowledge, pioneer solutions to prominent problems and ultimately make the world a better place for generations to come.
