This is your chance to experience college life in the vibrant city of Chicago!

The ACM Chicago Program: Arts, Entrepreneurship, & Social Justice gives you the knowledge and tools needed to address major issues facing cities today. You’ll also gain hands-on experience through internships and independent research.

Chicago photoExplore the arts, entrepreneurship, and social justice in one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. Working alongside faculty practitioners, you’ll discover Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods, expand your worldview, and broaden your professional network. Whether you take a field trip to a start-up business, visit a storefront gallery, or interact with community activists, you’ll be engaged with and challenged by everything Chicago has to offer.

Global in its reach, yet distinctively American, Chicago was built on connections, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit. It’s also a hub of communication, commerce, and creative energy. Make lifelong connections with Chicagoans from all walks of life and enjoy the many museums, theatres, restaurants, recreational areas, and historical landmarks that call Chicago home.
