Undergraduate Courses

Join us this summer to explore new subjects, delve into a current interest with intense focus, and broaden your powers of perception when you earn college credit with undergraduate courses at the University of Chicago. As a Summer Session student, you can enroll in undergraduate courses drawn from the regular curriculum of the College at the University of Chicago. Summer Quarters runs from June 10 to August 10. September Terms runs from August 26 - September 13; see more information at the September Term page.

You will have access to the same exceptional educational resources that are available to all students during the regular academic year. All of our classes are taught by distinguished professors and experienced lecturers. In these smaller class settings you will be able to receive personal attention from your professors and get to know other students in your class well.


Each summer course, regardless of length, is the equivalent of a full quarter-long (9 week) course, and meets for a least 30 contact hours.
