Loyola University Chicago

THEA Institute

Sample Schedule

Below you'll find an example of a day in the life of the THEA Institute, with possible class topics and activities a student would encounter at THEA. Most days follow this general outline, with free time in the afternoon and evenings as well.


We work hard each year to ensure our curriculum and co-curricular activities are as strong as possible. This means that we cannot guarantee these same class topics or activities will be offered in the future.

Wednesday Field Trip

On Wednesday of the Institute, we head to downtown Chicago to enjoy a boat tour on the Chicago River and Chicago-style deep dish pizza for lunch. In the afternoon, small groups explore the city together guided by their college mentors! It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy all our great city has to offer and build community among our student group.
