MA Program Overview

Exceptional Training

We seek to produce University of Chicago-trained social scientists, well versed in the most recent literatures of their discipline, and ready to make important contributions by deploying computational research designs. 

All MA students will complete the equivalent of 18 graduate seminars and write an MA thesis, modeled on a professional journal article.

Students take three - and no more than three - classes in each of the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, in each of their two years.

The academic year begins in late September and runs through the middle of June.

There will be optional programs in Academic English in August, and in computational math in September.
