Over the weekend Mike praised the Institute for Humane Studies teaching workshop he attended last summer. I’ll add to that an IHS recommendation for students: attend as many IHS summer seminars as you can while you’re a student!
More than ten week-long seminars sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies apply classical liberal ideas, such as individual rights and free markets, to topics in history, economics, journalism, policy, and more. From breakfast until the evening reception, you can debate and discuss the ideas of liberty with enthusiastic professors and peers from around the world. IHS covers all meal and program costs. Undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates are eligible to apply.
In my experience both as student and as instructor at IHS summer seminars, they are intellectually challenging and engaging, and will be thought-provoking in ways that go well beyond your academic courses. I’ve learned so much in economics, philosophy, political theory, and other areas, and have developed important and meaningful relationships that have enriched my life.
Explore and learn more about IHS summer seminars today. The application deadline for this summer is March 31, which is fast approaching.
