Spend a resume-strengthening summer in Chicago.

Our 10-week summer program is ideal for athletes, campus leaders or other students eager to take advantage of our semester program but who find it difficult to be away from campus for an entire semester. It delivers the same memorable Chicago experience designed to help you build your resume and your professional network – invaluable as you prepare to fulfill your calling post-college.

The tracks we offer:

We work collaboratively with you to place you in a full-time internship that matches your interests. Our experience and support is particularly helpful, given the highly competitive nature of summer internships. While Chicago Semester cannot guarantee paid internships, students in certain fields, such as accounting, finance, business management, marketing and human resources, may have the opportunity to apply for some.


Through your internship, you’ll gain relevant, hands-on experience that sets you apart in the job market. Your internship will also help you:

  • Strengthen your resume
  • Guide your career path decision-making
  • Open the door to professional networking opportunities
  • Prepare for the demands of full-time work


Along with your internship, you’ll take a professional seminar and one of three courses for academic credit.

"I feel like the world has opened up so much more. Not only did I end up with a great internship experience, an amazing mentor and an exceptional time in the city, but I also made some new friends whom I will remain in contact with after leaving Chicago. This experience is really all-encompassing and touches every part of your life."
