SFSC’s Social and Behavioral Sciences Department invites you to participate in Constitution Week, Sept. 14-18. Constitution Week commemorates Sept. 17, 1787, the day the U.S. Constitution was signed. Learn more about Constitution Day and the significance of the U.S. Constitution at the websites Constitution Day, the National Constitution Center, and the National Archives.

SFSC promotes civic literacy through Constitution Week activities and civic literacy-infused courses. A Florida statute that went into effect on Aug. 17, 2018 requires students seeking an Associate in Arts degree to demonstrate competency in civic literacy. To meet this requirement, students may take either POS 1041 American Government or AMH 1020 Introductory Survey of American History since 1877.
