Our distinguished faculty works closely with students in graduate seminars, colloquia, and tutorials that form the core of advanced training at Chicago. As in any program, a student is expected to learn to read critically, to analyze primary sources skillfully, and to write rigorously. At Chicago we also expect students to produce work that significantly advances the frontiers of their field.
