Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduates at the University of Chicago apply to and receive admission from the College.  As part of the Core and through their Major and Minor programs, their interaction with the Division’s distinguished faculty is a cornerstone of their UChicago experience. Under the auspices of the Social Sciences Collegiate Division (SSCD), nearly a quarter of College enrollments are in Division courses, and 40 percent of undergraduates major in a social science discipline. SSCD also hosts interdisciplinary majors and course clusters, experiential learning programs, and undergraduate research opportunities.

The Division, in concert with the College, offers BA/MA opportunities for undergraduates, and Division faculty offer a host of research positions for undergraduates throughout the academic year to more closely engage them in the core mission of the institution.
