''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 BiologicalScience''''s to improve human and animal health; AgriculturalScience applies knowledge of BotAny (and many other sciences, in fact) to improving the growing of crops; etc.
