About

History

By 1910, the University had developed a variety of traditions, including a coat of arms bearing a phoenix emerging from the flames and a Latin motto, Crescat scientia; vita excolatur (“Let knowledge grow from more to more; and so be human life enriched”). In 1894, maroon had become the University’s official color and “the Maroons” its nickname.

Education

UChicago is home to some of the most venerated academic programs in the world, having established the fields of ecology and sociology, the first graduate international affairs program in the United States, and the first executive MBA program. Explore our current degree and academic programs across the undergraduate College, five graduate divisions, six professional schools, and the Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.

Research

With a commitment to free and open inquiry, our scholars take an interdisciplinary approach to research that spans arts to engineering, medicine to education. Their work transforms the way we understand the world, advancing fields of study, and often creating new ones.

Generating new knowledge for the benefit of present and future generations, UChicago research has had an impact around the globe, leading to such breakthroughs as discovering the link between cancer and genetics, establishing revolutionary theories of economics, and developing tools to produce reliably excellent urban schooling.
