Weinberg was appealing to me for the impressive seamlessness by which you could jump in and out of different programs.”

Weinberg College students are able and encouraged to take classes offered by other schools at Northwestern. You can take individual classes that interest you, and you can also choose to complete a minor, certificate, or concentration in another school.
