Progressive is one word that defines Roosevelt University, a mid-sized school in Chicago, Illinois.
Interdisciplinary programs are one way that Roosevelt fulfills this mission, allowing students to build their own major by combining areas of study.
Even students who get a bachelor’s or graduate degree in a more traditional major like Business, Creative Writing, Education, Languages, Pharmacy Studies or Psychology are encouraged to explore new pathways and new ways of thinking about themselves and the world.
Campus life at Roosevelt also fosters progressive attitudes in its students. With a mission of social change, Roosevelt encourages students to make contributions both locally and globally through community service activities and student organizations committed to social change.
Arts and culture are also alive and well on the Roosevelt campus (the Theatre Performance program is a popular one) and in the city of Chicago, which features museums, theatres and some of the country’s greatest restaurants.
Among its student services are the Academic Success Center that provides tutoring and peer mentoring, a career development center that places students in internships and provides job placement assistance, a counseling center and financial aid for eligible students.
While Roosevelt has separate entrance requirements for students looking to gain admission to its adult-learner program, those applying as freshmen need to submit transcripts, test scores, an essay and recommendation letters.
