At Lake Forest, humanities majors divide their time between two worlds: our beautiful, residential campus and the world-class cultural center of Chicago. On campus, students thrive in small, discussion-based courses, take advantage of research opportunities and student groups, and work closely with great professors. In Chicago, students take field trips, pursue internships and career opportunities with the help of our Career Advancement Center, and simply enjoy the city’s wealth of offerings in cuisine, theater, art, and culture.
