The Certificate in Chicago Studies

The College's interdisciplinary Certificate in Chicago Studies recognizes students who have meaningfully integrated their academic inquiry with positive, impactful engagement in Chicago across their years in the College. The certificate is available to students in any field of study; the specific path to fulfillment of its requirements is unique to each student, and may include discipline-based, academic study of the city; pre-professional experience in one or more Chicago institutions; deep engagement with a particular community; and social change and advocacy work. Students interested in earning the certificate receive one-on-one advising and support from Chicago Studies' team.
