Are you interested in how texts and images have shaped the idea of Mexico, from the period of European invasion to the nation's early-20th-century revolution? Apply for the 2023 Newberry Library Undergraduate Seminar. Interested undergraduates must apply by Oct. 6.

The NLUS provides an opportunity for undergraduates to participate in an intensive seminar and produce an original research project, using the world-renowned collections of the Newberry Library. This is an especially important opportunity for students who are considering graduate study in history or the humanities.

The university will select up to five DePaul students to participate alongside peers from UIC, Roosevelt and Loyola universities. The participating DePaul students will earn nine credit hours in two disciplines, enrolling in 4.5 credits during winter quarter and 4.5 credits in spring quarter.

During the first part of the course, students investigate topics related to the seminar’s theme and work with resources the Newberry has to offer. Under the guidance of the instructors and using primary sources from the Newberry, students will then select a topic to explore and develop into a research paper and presentation. The seminar is team-taught by instructors from different disciplines.

Learn more and apply on the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences website.
