Constitutional Studies Minor

Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States
UVU’s Department of History and Political Science offers an excellent undergraduate Constitutional Studies program. Students who enroll in this special minor benefit from a rigorous curriculum and coursework examining European and Colonial foundations of American constitutionalism, the political thought and constitution-making of the American founding, and the framing and development of the U.S. Constitution. The Minor in Constitutional Studies is organizationally distinct from CCS. However, several CCS staff teach courses in the minor, and CCS continually encourages students through publicity efforts and scholarship opportunities to enroll in this exceptional program.
