An Online Education in Liberty

Through a partnership with the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, The King’s College offers two 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.

Course Features

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.

Ideal for Dual Enrollment

High-school students who want to get a headstart on their college careers can enroll through our Online Dual Enrollment track.

Costs and Deadlines

Pricing and deadlines vary. See our Dual Enrollment page if you plan to take this course while still in high school, and our King’s Crossover page if you are a college student.
