Resource Of The Week: Hillsdale College’s Free ‘Constitution 101’ Online Course

Although I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who’s attended Hillsdale College (a small liberal arts college in Hillsdale, Michigan), I’ve only heard good things about the school. And here’s one more “good thing” to come out of “the conservative Harvard,” as it’s been called. From the college’s website:

The U.S. Constitution is the key to securing liberty for all Americans — yet very few know exactly what it says and what freedoms it protects. Hillsdale College is working to make 2015 the “Year of the Constitution,” dedicating this year to educating millions of Americans about this critical document. That’s why the College is offering its most popular course, “Constitution 101” for free, when you sign up now.

Hillsdale’s course, Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution, features the same professors who teach this course on Hillsdale College’s campus. Hillsdale is one of the only colleges in America — outside of the military academies — that requires every student to take a course on the Constitution to graduate.

The course is delivered via email, with one lesson per week for 10 weeks. Each lesson features lively teaching and discussion boards, suggested readings, weekly quizzes, and more…

By Hillsdale College’s reputation alone, I’m guessing the approach taken by the course won’t be one of the U.S. Constitution being interpreted as a so-called “living document.” Or a meaningless scap of paper. So prospective enrollees may want to keep that in mind.

“Constitution 101” isn’t the only class being offered for free by Hillsdale. Current courses include “The Federalist Papers” and “A Proper Understanding of K-12 Education: Theory and Practice.” Archived instruction includes (as of April 2, 2015):

• Economics 101- The Principles of Free Market Economics
• History 102: American Heritage- From Colonial Settlement to the Reagan Revolution
• History 101: Western Heritage- From the Book of Genesis to John Locke
• Constitution 201- The Progressive Rejection of the Founding and the Rise of Bureaucratic Despotism

Along with “Constitution 101”. According to the website:

Hillsdale College offers free, not-for-credit online courses by its faculty. These online versions are based upon those in the College’s undergraduate Core Curriculum, which all Hillsdale students must complete prior to graduation.

In addition to lectures, these online courses feature readings, study guides, quizzes, and discussion groups. There is also an opportunity to receive certificates of completion for each course.

Ready to get schooled? Head on over to the Hillsdale College here for more information about and to register for “Constitution 101” and those other courses.

And feel free to pass this along to legislators you think could use a “refresher” on the Constitution of the United States of America.

I can think of more than a few who fit this bill off the top of my head…
