Chicago Experience Course

Course Description

The city of Chicago is a place of diverse cultures, rich history, and vibrant urban life. Using the city as a lens, this course seeks to explore a wide range of contemporary American issues, including politics, history, race, class, and culture by examining how they play out in the "Windy City". Chicago Center students will strengthen their speaking, writing, analysis, and presentation skills through the course content, which includes formal lectures, guest speakers, and a number of outings that allow us to move beyond the campus and explore the sights and sounds of Chicago.


Exploring the United States Through Chicago is taught by Professor Michael Hines.
