[image-2] In today’s increasingly complex and highly polarized political climate, it can be easy to lose sight of what this country was intended to be: a place of freedom, equality, and justice for all. From July 16-20, the College of Charleston Honors College is launching a week-long course for high school students to explore just how well this message is being manifested in today’s world.

The course, With Liberty and Justice for All: Deconstructing the American Promise, will focus on social justice in contemporary America through interdisciplinary, experiential learning; readings; and discussions surrounding the idea of what constitutes a “just” society. The course will discuss housing, food security, employment, and many more subjects in a hands-on approach.

The week-long course will run from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily, and has a $500 fee at registration. Students can apply online.
