An education rooted in the language of American constitutionalism


View NEW Website


Hillsdale’s Van Andel Graduate School of Statesmanship offers the Doctor of Philosophy in Politics and the Master of Arts in Politics.

The principal aim of the Graduate School is to educate students in the language of American constitutionalism and to place its graduates in positions of public service in politics, in journalism, in the Academy, and elsewhere.

This aim is grounded in the mission of the College, which states that Hillsdale seeks to perpetuate the civil and religious liberties of the United States by the “diffusion of sound learning” and the comprehension of the “American experiment of self-government under law.”
