College of Humanities
& Social Sciences
The degrees and courses offered through our college are crucial to students' understanding connections between the past, present and future, connections between their own experiences and the world they live in, and connections between their education and leadership opportunities.
The discovery of new knowledge
Courses in the humanities and social sciences serve an important role in the general education of students because they promote intellectual engagement and effective communication, encourage critical thinking, support the discovery of new knowledge and promote an understanding and appreciation of diversity.
Degrees in humanities and social science disciplines prepare students for graduate degrees or professional schools, provide career opportunities in diverse professions, and teach students how to actively participate in our global society. Today, more than ever, courses and degrees in the liberal arts remain at the central core of what it means to be educated.
Named after REL Wilson, Wilson Hall serves as a mainstay of campus. Its completion in 1932 was vital in ASU's survival during the Great Depression and represents triumph over adversity.
