Founding Documents in the College of Arts and Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences enriches the educational experience of students throughout the University of South Carolina through the documents that shaped American Heritage. Seven courses have been redesigned to meet the undergraduate requirement for courses on America’s founding documents and works about African Americans’ struggles for freedom. See those courses here. 

Beyond the classroom, activities will include public lectures, exhibitions, discussion panels and other cocurricular activities about the United States’ constitutional heritage documents. Many events are open to the campus and the community.
