The Presidency
and the Constitution

This free, 10-week, not-for-credit course, taught by the Hillsdale College politics faculty, will help you understand the structure and function of executive power in the American constitutional order. The course begins with the place of the president in the constitutionalism of the Founding Fathers and examines how that role has changed with the rise of the modern Progressive administrative state.

Each week consists of a lecture given by a Hillsdale College professor, a moderated Q&A session, quizzes, study guides, and more! Lectures are released weekly; however, they are archived for future viewing at your convenience. Once you complete the course, you will have the opportunity to take a final exam and receive a free “Certificate of Completion.”
