Undergraduates and the Social Sciences
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.
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.
