The humanities are how people understand the human experience and the world around them. The humanities bridge time, personifying a connection to those who have come before us. Research in this area documents the past, transforms the present and creates the future.

Social Sciences

Social science is the study of human behavior and its relationship to society. Our interdisciplinary research considers individual and group behavior and the resulting cultural, economic, political and social implications, driving social change to benefit present and future generations.

Natural Sciences

Natural science is the study of the physical world around us. It encompasses the transformation of any measurable phenomena, from energy to matter. Our research in the natural sciences nurtures discovery, taking on today’s challenges to improve West Virginia’s quality of life and make the world a better place.
