Your Life. Our Work. SBE.
Social, behavioral and economic (SBE) sciences advance scientific knowledge about people and society. This knowledge furthers NSF's mission to advance U.S. health, prosperity, welfare, and defense — it is critical for the country's well-being.
SBE IN THE SPOTLIGHT
SBE sciences explore human behavior and social organizations. They look at how economic, political, environmental, social, and cultural forces affect the lives of people from birth to old age — and how people in turn shape those forces.
SBE-funded research is helping to provide insights into how youngsters with autism spectrum disorder can develop stronger social relationships into the future.
A story book app developed as a part of NSF-Funded research is helping a little girl named Candor learn ASL while having fun.
Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University studies how mindset can help us all achieve more.
