Exploring the Idea of Liberty
Immerse yourself in the great texts on liberty through six online courses developed by The Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
An Online Six-Course Education in Liberty
Through a partnership with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, The King’s College offers a series of six online classes that explore dimensions of liberty from ancient philosophy up through contemporary economic and political thought. These courses integrate politics, philosophy, and economics in the same style as the Oxford PPE degree and The King’s College’s core curriculum. Students read great thinkers from across the liberal arts to understand why tradition of liberty is vital and how it can best be defended.
Our online format allows you to earn transferable college credit on your own schedule.
3 Credits Per Course
Primary source readings, discussion boards, engaging assignments, and recorded lectures from leading intellectuals promote deep learning in every course.
Credits Easily Transfer
As a regionally-accredited institution, The King’s College issues credits that transfer to other colleges and institutions. Students should still work with their home institution to confirm approval.

Students enrolled at another college or university, as well as high school graduates starting their King’s education online, can enroll through our King’s Crossover track.
Ideal for Dual Enrollment
