Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM): Chicago Program - Arts, Entrepreneurship, and Urban Studies
The ACM Chicago Program gives students a solid grounding - knowledge, resources, and connections - and the flexibility to follow their passions.
Students are encouraged to explore the big issues facing cities today and relate those issues to their own lives, education and career aspirations.
The program offers three main areas of emphasis:
- Entrepreneurship, and
- Urban Studies
Students can choose to focus on one of these topics or to engage in classes and projects across the disciplines.
All students take the team-taught Core Course, which draws on the three themes to introduce students to Chicago and give context to the environment in which they are living and learning.
All of this takes place in a dynamic city that has, from its founding, been built on connections and innovation. At the center of the country, Chicago has always been a hub of communication, commerce, and transportation. Through the years, Chicago has continued to produce leaders across the spectrum of its artistic, business, educational, activist, social and cultural areans.
- Housing is provided in shared apartments.
- Eligibility: Open to all majors.
