Veterans, Society and Service

Description

The concentration in veterans, society and service embraces ASU's charter mission by crossing intellectual disciplines to critically analyze and engage the relationships between military and civilian cultures. This innovative program, based on socially responsible scholarship drawn from disciplines of history, politics, psychology, sociology, social justice and the arts, prepares students to address and reduce the military-civilian divide. This concentration enhances ASU's position as one of the most veteran-supportive universities in the country by facilitating the study nationally and internationally of the civilian and military relationship. It augments such diverse majors as history, journalism, law, policy, politics, social work and education. The concentration prepares students to pursue research and transform society for and with veterans.
