Whether you think of it as the Windy City, the Second City, the City of Big Shoulders, the City in a Garden, or the City that Works, we're glad you're here.
Chicago Studies is here to make sure you don't stay an outsider while you're here as a student. Think of us as a sort-of-minor that can help you forge a genuine bond with Chi-town and its many communities. And if you're an instructor, think of us as your partner in constructing meaningful, impactful learning experiences throughout the Great American City.
