Title of Motion: Request from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences – School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership – for the establishment of an undergraduate certificate – Philosophy, Politics and Economics
Action Requested: This curricular proposal has received all college, school, unit and university administrative approvals, and is being presented to the Senate for review and voting decision.

The School of Civic & Economic Thought and Leadership proposes to provide an undergraduate certificate in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Four ASU units--the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies, the School of
Politics and Global Studies, the Department of Economics in the W. P. Carey School of Business, and the School of Civic & Economic Thought and Leadership--would offer required courses. Universities across the world offer undergraduate
Philosophy, Politics, and Economics majors, minors, and certificates. This distinctive certificate administered through our school prepares students to become broadly informed and active citizens, and leaders, in liberal democratic society and our globalized world. The certificate offers core conceptual tools and disciplinary content in philosophy, political science and economics – and appreciation for the foundation they together provide to address the social and political realities, debates, and uncertainties America faces, including their globalized dimensions. These capacities across humanities and social science thinking also will make them adaptive thinkers and leaders regarding future development
