About NLU

National-Louis University has a rich tradition of innovative education. Elizabeth Harrison, who revolutionized early childhood education in the United States by teaching kindergarten instructors, founded the school in 1886.

Today, the university remains dedicated to serving the greater good, offering academic programs in Education, Health Care Leadership, and Human Services, in addition to Liberal Arts and Business. The school’s academics include undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral studies.

In particular, National-Louis’ doctoral programs emphasize the school’s commitment to education. Some of the specialized subjects you can study include:

* Disability and Equity in Education

* Adult and Continuing Education

* Community College Leadership

* Curriculum & Social Inquiry

* Educational Leadership

* Educational Psychology/Human Learning & Development

* Reading & Language

This wide array of offerings is part of a comprehensive and progressive approach to teaching. National-Louis seeks to train teachers who develop supportive and mutually beneficial learning communities, and who actively search for solutions to educational problems.

National-Louis University’s main campus is located in Chicago, but it has six satellite campuses scattered throughout Illinois and Wisconsin, as well as one in Nowy S?cz, Poland. The school also offers distance learning for those who can’t attend classes in person.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

Overall, I think NLU is a great school for someone who wants smaller and more intimate classes. The quarter schedule is great because you never have a chance to become bored of your classes and the 10 weeks go by really fast! Professors are always willing to stay after class and help you and are always easy to reach by e-mail. You never have to deal with grad students who are working for professors, and are actually in direct contact with your actual professors which isn't always a possibility at larger universities.
