Beginning today, Hillsdale College in Michigan offers a free, on-line 10-week course of study titled "Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution."
Featuring an expanded format from the "Introduction to the Constitution" lecture series with Hillsdale College President Dr. Larry Arnn, Constitution 101 follows closely the one-semester course required of all Hillsdale College undergraduate students.
In this course, you can:
- watch lectures from the same Hillsdale faculty who teach on campus;
- study the same readings taught in the College course;
- submit questions for weekly Q&A sessions with the faculty;
- access a course study guide;
- test your knowledge through weekly quizzes; and
- upon completion of the course, receive a certificate from Hillsdale College.
- You must register in order to participate in Constitution 101. Even if you have already signed up for a previous Hillsdale webcast or seminar, we ask that you complete the simple registration process for Constitution 101. There is no cost to register for this course, but we ask that you consider a donation to support our efforts to educate millions of Americans about our nation’s Founding documents and principles.
As of last month, Hillsdale has been making available its book titled The U.S. Constitution: A Reader. Edited by the College's politics department, it features 113 primary source documents on the principles of the Founding, and the framing and structure of the Constitution; and it follows history through secession and Civil War to the current rejection of Constitutional law in favor of the administrative state.
