Northwestern is located in Evanston, Illinois, on a lakeside campus 12 miles from Chicago, one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Northwestern puts a strong emphasis on teaching its 8,000 undergraduates: our student-to-faculty ratio is 6:1, and 80% of courses enroll under 20 students. Our students come from 95 countries and bring remarkably diverse ideas and backgrounds to campus. Northwestern’s 6 undergraduate schools offer 199 programs of study in arts and sciences, engineering, communication, journalism, education and social policy, and music. Programs span traditional liberal studies disciplines but also include specialized concentrations: business, theatre, entrepreneurship, legal studies, integrated marketing, among others.
