• “SHE IS NOVELTY;
    For she is never the Chicago you saw
    When you passed through the last time."
    ― Mark Twain

Current and Upcoming Chicago-Focused Courses

Every quarter, instructors from around the University offer students the chance to learn more about the great metropolis in which it is located. Chicago Studies aims to highlight these courses and direct interested students to them. Students and instructors in these courses, both current and future, can add their classes to this listing by contacting Chris Skrable, UCSC Associate Director, via cskrable@uchicago.edu.

Students interested in a more immersive, interdisciplinary experience of studying Chicago should consider applying to the Study Chicago Quarter, offered annually in the Spring.
