A First-Principles Approach to Political Philosophy
An education rooted in the language of American constitutionalism
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.”
All degree programs at Hillsdale College, including the programs of the Van Andel Graduate School of Statesmanship, are fully accredited. Hillsdale College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. The Commission can be contacted at (800) 621-7440 or at www.hlcommission.org.
