The School of Social Transformation, the first of its kind in the U.S., unites diverse students and faculty across academic boundaries to strategically create social change that is democratic, inclusive and just.

Our diverse community of scholars takes an innovative approach to the study of social justice by uniting multiple academic disciplines in justice studies, women and gender studies, ethnic studies and social education.

As a graduate student in our school you will be immersed in publicly­-engaged academic research, creative and critical knowledge production and socially-embedded community partnerships.

Our graduate programs take a transdisciplinary approach to understanding and solving problems, and our programs offer the flexibility for students to tailor their studies and research to match individual interests.

Backed by the resources of Arizona State University, the nation’s largest public research university, graduate students in the School of Social Transformation catalyze social change while receiving their degree.
