It empowers individuals to challenge conventional thinking in pursuit of original ideas. Students in the College develop critical, analytic, and writing skills in rigorous, interdisciplinary core curriculum.

UChicago is home to some of the most venerated academic programs in the world, having established the fields of ecology and sociology, the first graduate international affairs program in the United States, and the first executive MBA program.
