HIS 114 - US Constitutional History

3 credits

This course explores the historical roots and evolution of the U.S. Constitution from 1787 to the present, beginning with an examination of the document itself in the context of 18th century political theory and social relations as mirrored in the lives of its drafters, and continuing with an analysis of the constitutional controversies over broadening civil rights and popular participation of society through Constitutional amendment.
