Constitutional Studies mission

curriculum

programs

The Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage was founded to promote the study of American constitutionalism from legal, historical, and philosophical perspectives.

Students can declare a Letters major with a concentration in Constitutional Studies or a minor in Constitutional Studies. Constitutional Studies requires fifteen hours of credit in four areas: Ancient Foundations; Philosophical Perspectives; the American Founding; and the Modern Legacy of Constitutionalism. See our website for a list of qualifying courses.

The Constitutional Studies Symposium will be an annual colloquium on constitutional issues. The series will launch in the Spring of 2011 with a symposium on Habeas Corpus.

Our affiliated faculty includes representatives from History, Political Science, Classics & Letters, the Law School, as well as a number of other departments and schools. The Institute’s goal is to make OU a national leader in the study of constitutionalism - a place where students and faculty alike consider the enduring questions of political life through the critical lenses of history and political theory.

Constitutional Studies is ideal for students who are going to law school, who are interested in American politics or history, or who are seeking a program that combines history, political philosophy, and law. The minor is also recommended for pre-professional majors who seek an exciting option in the humanities.

The Institute has already generated a number of new course offerings at OU, including “Law and Justice,” “Religion and the Constitution,” “The Origins of Rights in America,” and “1937: Roosevelt versus the Supreme Court.” Students can join the Constitutional Studies Student Association, a student group that provides an exciting intellectual community and student-led programming.
