What courses does ISP include?

Writing is not approached as an exercise, but as a way of communicating with clarity and purpose. Quantitative analysis is not done in a workbook, but as a way of understanding and solving real-world problems.

Taking courses such as Angels and Fallen Women, Black Music Blues Nation, The Downside of Certainty, Why We Create, Measuring Fair Trade, The No-Impact Experiment, or Numbers from Wall Street inspires students to conduct research, think critically, reason quantitatively, and write effectively about intriguing topics.
