Applied Arts and Sciences is a category pretty much invented out of whole cloth for NuPedia, corresponding very roughly to areas in which professional degrees of various sorts are obtainable. There is a fairly coherent concept behind the category, however: the notion is that we use the natural and social sciences to shape our world. Law and public affairs addresses what we learn from PhiloSophy, SociOlogy?, and PoliticalScience?; the HealthSciences? study ways to apply our knowledge of the BiologicalSciences to improve human and animal health; AgriculturalScience? applies knowledge of BotAny? (and many other sciences, in fact) to improving the growing of crops; etc.
