The executive power wielded by President Washington and subsequent American presidents, while vast, is limited by the Constitution. In what sense vast? In what sense limited? These questions were debated in the founding era, and they continue to be debated today. The newest online course offered by Hillsdale College – free of charge – addresses the topic of executive power within a constitutional context often lacking in the current debate.
Hillsdale College has a new free online course that will focus on what the presidency was intended to be, what has become of it today, and how it might be restored to its original constitutional form. “The Presidency and the Constitution,” taught by Hillsdale’s Politics Department faculty, is available free of charge.
