The political science department now offers a minor in Constitutional Studies, according to department chair Bill Curtis. The Constitutional Studies minor is an interdisciplinary liberal arts course of study that seeks to introduce students to U.S. constitutional law and its historical, political, and philosophical roots. It provides students who are considering going to law school with a foundational experience in thinking about, writing about, and discussing the law. It further provides something that all University of Portland students should be interested in: knowledge of the U.S. government’s foundational document that will enable them to become more effective and engaged democratic citizens.
