Program and Course Descriptions
Discover the dynamic program and course opportunities for undergraduate students this summer at the University of Chicago. Within a tight-knit campus community, students from all over the globe are exposed to diverse ideas in classrooms taught by world-class faculty and instructors. In the classroom, students are given the chance to take intellectual risks, dive deeper into subject matter, and discuss questions that define "The Life of the Mind."
Can I take summer courses for credit?
Every Summer Session course, regardless of length, carries the equivalent credit of one full-length (quarter-long) course in the College at the University of Chicago. UChicago operates on the quarter, rather than the semester, system; each course offered at the University during Summer Session is the equivalent of 5 quarter hours, or 3.3 semester hours. UChicago grants 100 credits per course.
