What is Chicago Studies?
The Chicago Studies Program highlights and creates opportunities for students in the College to study, engage with, and discover the city of Chicago. Chicago Studies is a program of the College and the University Community Service Center (UCSC) in partnership with departments and programs across the University of Chicago.
Launched in 2008, the Chicago Studies Program works closely with University of Chicago faculty, offices, and students to:
Provide resources for faculty to supplement their courses by connecting them with the city,
Create events and programs that put students’ areas of study in the context of Chicago communities and institutions, and
Support student research and creative expression about the city of Chicago.
