American Constitutional Democracy Minor

The Kinder Institute’s Minor in American Constitutional Democracy is designed for University of Missouri undergraduates of any major who wish to pursue an in-depth, interdisciplinary course of study that focuses on the origins and evolution of the United States’ political traditions.

A minimum of fifteen (15) credits are required for the minor, and at least three (3) of those credits must come from an internship, study abroad class, or other approved experiential course. A full list of courses that apply toward the ACD Minor can be found here.

Note: Per University regulations, students may not use a course to fulfill both a major and minor requirement. In addition, regulations stipulate that students may take a maximum of 42 hours in their major, meaning that to receive the ACD minor students must have taken at least one course from the Kinder Institute curriculum outside of their major field.
