School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership

The School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University is proud to announce its new master’s degree in Classical Liberal Education and Leadership, available this fall.

The new master’s degree is an excellent academic and professional development opportunity for educators, school leaders and others interested in studying classic texts from a broad range of disciplines through the Socratic Discussion method. Graduate students, classical charter school teachers, and home school educators interested in reading primary sources and engaging in lively seminar discussions will find this program particularly suited to their interests. Courses include: classic texts in political philosophy and justice, natural science and philosophy, leadership and statesmanship, literary leaders, the foundations of logic and faith and reason. All of the courses will be offered at ASU’s Tempe campus.


The founding director of SCETL, Dr. Paul Carrese, is a member of Institute’s Advisory Council.
