Learn what makes UChicago one of the most innovative and impactful universities in the world through the Pathways program. Students will explore different facets of a subject area, in order to learn more about the approaches and issues involved, and to determine which facet they want to study further.
Each three-week program provides a broad overview of how scholars at the University of Chicago articulate problems and apply solutions in a particular field of study—Economics, Human Rights, Law, Molecular Engineering, Data Science, and more. Through a series of lectures led by faculty members and research associates, students delve into a variety of perspectives and topics. University of Chicago students serve as Teaching Assistants, meeting regularly with participants to discuss what they have heard, read, and seen, and work with faculty to provide special opportunities for further learning, such as labs and off-campus trips.
This undergraduate-level program is ideal for high school students who want to explore an area of study and gain an appreciation for some of the approaches central to the discipline and some of the most pressing issues or questions that scholars and practitioners in the field are currently addressing.
Eligibility: Current high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, who are at least 14 years old.
