We offer credit and noncredit learning opportunities in a variety of subjects, from more traditional disciplines such as literature and philosophy, to business-oriented courses, to master’s degrees. Our courses are conveniently located in-person at the University of Chicago Gleacher Center and NBC Tower in downtown Chicago, and are primarily in the evening and on weekends, to fit the schedule of working adults. We also offer online courses, for those not located in Chicago, or who wish to study from home.
