Arts and Sciences Summer in Chicago

Campus North Residential & Dining Commons

Arts and Sciences is an intensive pre-college summer program for high school students that cultivates critical thinking, innovative problem-solving, and effective communication skills through interdisciplinary work drawing upon material from the sciences, humanities, and the social sciences. Students educated in the liberal arts tradition are distinguished by their ability to successfully navigate a fast-paced world that is increasingly characterized by complexity, diversity, and change. In a program inspired by UChicago’s fabled Core curriculum, academically ambitious high school students will have the opportunity to experience the university’s brand of intellectual engagement in an on-campus program taught by teams of faculty and graduate student instructors from different disciplines.

Prepare for college while getting a first-hand look at the real academic college experience.
