Chicago Field Studies

Our Program


What is CFS?


Chicago Field Studies (CFS) is a unique program that allows students to experience what it is like to be part of the workforce. CFS provides students the opportunity to intern while participating in a weekly seminar that incorporates readings, discussions, case studies, field trips, guest lectures and presentations to supplement what students learn in their workplaces.

We are still accepting applications for Winter 2021, though space is limited; some courses have waitlists. We will accept students on a rolling basis, as space allows.
All CFS courses will be synchronous and online for Winter 2021. Internships will be either remote, hybrid or in-person, depending on employer, NU Policy and Health protocols in Cook County and Illinois.
