Join the Ranks of ISI Students Learning Core Knowledge and the Principles of Liberty in Engaging Online Courses while Earning New Academic Credentials
ISI and PPE: Your Trusted Path to Liberty Education
Welcome to the PPE Academy! Together we will explore the fields of philosophy, politics, and economics (hence PPE) in juxtaposition and with a view to better understanding the principles and history of liberty.
A project of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), the PPE Academy offers a series of engaging new online courses taught by accomplished professors and awards a certificate of completion and other resume worthy credentials upon completion.
PPE studies are thriving today. More than 70 programs exist in America, with roots tracing back one hundred years ago to Oxford University in 1920. Many of the worlds most recognized leaders were PPE students.
PPE works because it connects policy questions and ethical problems of the day with the longer legacy of debates and intellectual developments that transcend departments and disciplines. It seeks out the perennial in the present.
The PPE Academy will appeal to students increasingly looking for alternative programs that cap educational experiences with uniquely focused courses, and which offer entry to a national network. For nearly 70 years, ISI has educated generations of leaders in the first principles of freedom and has a growing network of alumni and supports across the country.
Employers, too, are looking for innovative ways to validate core knowledge and critical skills, and are seeking out new pipelines of talent capable of meeting the challenges of today’s dynamic workplace. PPE Academy certificates will be a high-quality answer to that search.
If you are tired of wasting your time on the lasted flavor of “Indignation Studies,” and are yearning for courses of substance that engage questions of enduring importance. If you are open to new academic credentials and new networks that can set your resume or LinkedIn profile apart. Then ISI’s PPE Academy is for you. That is exactly what we aim to deliver.
It’s time for you to take the next step and join with the PPE Academy community to study the great books, great thinkers, and great tradition of liberty! Plato and Aristotle, John Stuart Mill and C. S. Lewis, Edmund Burke and Solzhenitsyn, Magna Carta and the Federalist Papers, Tocqueville and Lincoln, Adam Smith and Friedrich Hayek among many, many others await you.
Have fun. Enjoy liberal education as it ought to be. And show off your new ISI PPE Academy credentials to your own network of friends and family.
ISI is America’s trusted source for education in liberty and we look forward to counting you among our alumni for many years to come.
Yours in PPE,
Jeffrey O. Nelson, Ph.D.
Provost, PPE Academy and Senior Vice President, ISI
