Dear Friend,

There’s no shortage of graduate programs in Washington, D.C. But how many truly prepare students to become principled leaders equipped to restore American government to its founding principles?

The Steve and Amy Van Andel Graduate School of Government, located at Hillsdale’s Washington, D.C., Campus on Capitol Hill, was established to extend the college’s teaching mission, rooted in America’s first principles, to students in the nation’s capital. Designed especially for busy young professionals who work in government, public policy, journalism, education, and nonprofit organizations, the School of Government offers an M.A. degree in government.

Classes meet in the evenings and on weekends. Generous scholarship support, usually up to full tuition, is available for ALL accepted students.

A current student, who lives and works in the District, said that the Graduate School of Government leaves her “refreshed after classes” because she can “talk about permanent principles and discuss our current moment in light of them.”

Our country needs steady, principled leadership now more than ever. Hillsdale College, with its long history of educating students in the pursuit of truth and defense of liberty, is equipping students to advance the cause of constitutional self-government in these turbulent times.

If you too desire to help us restore American government to the way our Founders intended it to operate or if you know of a young professional in the Washington, D.C., area who shares that interest, please download our brochure to learn more about this unique M.A. degree program.
