Here is some news that someone you know might be able to use.
After almost one hundred seventy years as a liberal arts college dedicated solely to the education of undergraduates, Hillsdale College is, in a very modest way, branching out – with the establishment, within its politics department, of a Graduate School of Statesmanship. Its aim is to provide instruction at the graduate level in political philosophy, American government, and statesmanship with an eye to preparing young people for careers in the academy, in think tanks, and in government.
There are, in fact, very few, if any places in the United States today where one can study in depth in a doctoral program the American Founding, the crisis that eventuated in the Civil War, Progressivism, the New Deal, the Great Society, Barack Obama’s New Foundation, and the like in light of the tradition of political philosophy. This program should help fill the gap, and I can easily imagine it having a long-term political impact. There are very few Americans in public life today who are capable to thinking through and discussing current issues with an eye to first principles. If we succeed, that will change.
Here is the list of faculty who will be teaching regularly in the program:
- Larry P. Arnn (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate School)
- Mickey Craig (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate School)
- Robert Eden (Ph.D., Harvard University)
- John W. Grant (Ph.D., University of Dallas)
- Will Morrisey (Ph.D., New School University)
- Ronald J. Pestritto (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate School)
- Kevin Portteus (Ph.D., University of Dallas)
- Paul A. Rahe (Ph.D., Yale University)
- Thomas G. West (Ph.D., Claremont Graduate School)
