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.
Research from SBE is helping preserve audio of 78 indigenous California languages and building infrastructure for 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.
NSF's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) report is the federal government's most comprehensive look at the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering education and employment.
Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology at Stanford University studies how mindset can help us all achieve more.
