Virtual Information Sessions

If you’re unable to make it to Chicago in person, consider attending a Virtual Information Session. These are one-hour, online sessions hosted by the Graduate Academic Advisor or Associate Director of Graduate Studies in which prospective students can learn more about the approach and curriculum of the School, the admissions process, and the kinds of work and activities graduate students are engaging with. View upcoming sessions.
