Explore. Learn. Have Fun.

For everyone’s health and safety, Summer Session will not host students on campus for residential programs this summer. We know this will be disappointing news for you, as it is for us. We are therefore moving as many courses to be taught remotely online so that you can still explore your intellectual interests, gain insight into college life, and be a part of our distinctive learning community. For University-wide updates related to COVID-19, please visit the University’s Coronoavirus Updates website.

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.
