The New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences supports reflexive, innovative, forward-thinking research, discovery, and creative activities. We seek to unite disparate perspectives and disciplines to create the scholarship of the future. Our expertise spans the social sciences (including law), mathematics, the natural sciences as well as the humanities, culture and arts.
As the first truly interdisciplinary unit at Arizona State University, New College capitalizes upon its many years of success at breaking down disciplinary boundaries. We seek to engage the full potential of intellectual thought in addressing, analyzing, and developing solutions for issues that are of interest to society. Students engaged in our research and creative activities are at the forefront of discovery and gain valuable real-world experience addressing issues important to current and future generations.
Our renowned faculty are funded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Institute of Justice and many other sources. We have created diverse partnerships with crime labs, private businesses, national museums, health care providers, sports clubs, faith-based organizations, public education systems, borderlands groups, performing arts groups and many more.
