Hillsdale College presents "Constitution 101" - Granite Grok

Hillsdale College presents “Constitution 101”

You know, that old dusty document that those old white men wrote that US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg doesn’t seem to like much?  Well, we do at the ‘Grok and when this post over at National Review Online showed up, I figured I’d give it a gander:

Hillsdale College is almost alone among colleges and universities in making its students take a course on the U.S. Constitution. Now you can take it as well, via Constitution 101, an online 10-week course:

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.

Well, I clicked on the link, and have signed up for the course.  They do ask for a donation, but the course itself is free!  A quick syllabus after the jump from the Registration site.
