Course Schedule

Course Schedule



All of our courses are offered in either hybrid or virtual format, with some also offered in an evening format.

The hybrid format combines virtual and in-person, blended learning. Hybrid format courses meet a few times virtually throughout the quarter and then all students come to Evanston for a 2 ½-day in-person session.

A few of our courses, including our Capstone and Fieldwork courses, are all virtual, so students meet with instructors, peers, and advisors virtually but do not have on-site meetings.

And then lastly the evening format. Some of our core courses are offered one night a week, from 6-9 PM, on Northwestern’s campus in Evanston. The content that is covered is essentially the same, and total the same hours of instruction, in hybrid versus evening format, but the learning experience is different.

We offer these different formats so that students can tailor their experiences and so that our curriculum is delivered in a way that reflects current learning technologies. The hybrid course design is top-notch and reflective of the way learning and work are done today.

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