The University of Chicago's Summer Session programs bring together a global community of thinkers who ask tough questions and embrace new ideas. Join fellow engaged, idea-driven students from around the globe as you dig in—sometimes literally—to a Summer Session program at one of the world’s great intellectual destinations. Then, together, take in the outdoor music festivals, professional sports games, and Lake Michigan shorelines to round out summertime in Chicago.
