ASU-managed facility, the Teotihuacan Research Laboratory

School of Human Evolution and Social Change

The School of Human Evolution and Social Change is rated the No. 1 research-producing anthropology program in the nation. Faculty research efforts are pursued in 40 countries.

Whether working with midwives in Guatemala to improve maternal and infant health through one of our field schools, examining how different cultures see and respond to water issues through the Global Ethnohydrology Study, or providing local policymakers with research results on human vulnerability to urban heat, our projects and programs make a difference. We encourage – and equip – our faculty and students to find ways to benefit our community, locally, nationally and globally.
