Course Schedule

Course Schedule



 All MSLOC courses are currently offered in either hybrid or virtual format. Select core courses are also offered in an evening format. Our courses are designed to deliver our curriculum and learning experiences in ways that reflect current learning technologies.

Hybrid format is our default course experience design as it reflects the way learning and work are done today. These courses combine virtual and in-person, blended learning. Hybrid format courses meet periodically on-line during the quarter for live, interactive sessions and then all students come to Northwestern’s campus in Evanston for a 2 ½-day in-person session (once during each course).

Virtual courses, including our Capstone and Fieldwork courses, do not require any on-site sessions. Students meet with instructors, peers, and advisors virtually throughout the quarter for live, interactive discussions and working sessions.

Evening courses meet once per week from 6 to 9 p.m., on Northwestern’s campus in Evanston.

Please note the courses, dates and times are subject to change.
