Weekend Center Launches; Earn a Degree One Saturday Per Month Students can earn Master's or Ed.D.; in-person classes supplemented by online learning

National Louis University Lisle campus.

Earn a master’s or Ed.D. degree by attending class one Saturday per month at the Weekend Center at NLU. The monthly Saturday classes are supplemented by online learning between sessions.

You’re busy. You have to go to work, take care of your family and keep your household running. Still, you want to earn an advanced degree to boost your career, advance to a fulfilling position and improve your family’s situation for the long haul.

National Louis University has created a solution: the Weekend Center at NLU. By devoting just one Saturday a month to attending a class and completing the balance of coursework online, students  can earn one of the following master’s or doctoral degrees:

  • Administration and Supervision (M.Ed.)
  • Curriculum and Instruction with Advanced Professional Specialization (M.Ed.)
  • Teaching and Learning with major in Postsecondary Teaching (Ed.D.)
  • Health Services Administration (MHA)
  • Human Services Management (M.S.)
  • Human Resource Management and Development (M.S.)
  • Written Communication (M.S.)

In addition to providing convenience, The Weekend Center at NLU provides a sense of community, so that classmates become your network of professional peers to support you on your career path.

Classes meet from 9 am to noon and 1 to 4 pm on select Saturdays, and time is built in to create a sense of connection, such as through yoga classes and career workshops, as well as to eat lunch with the rest of the learning community. All classes take place at National Louis University’s Lisle campus, which has free parking and is conveniently located off I-88 at the Route 53 exit. It is a six-minute taxi ride from the Lisle Metra train station.

Courses in your selected program are taught by outstanding professors who open the door to opportunities for advancement. Your NLU professors have designed courses that equip you with the knowledge and skills essential to push your career forward.

The interactive Saturday face-to-face sessions continue online throughout the term with engaging online instruction and discussions. It’s the perfect blend of real-life instruction and online convenience.

One mother of three who already attends a similar NLU weekend program observed, “The format of one weekend per month allowed my husband and I to plan ahead for the 18 months of the program. While I had some late nights of online work after putting our kids to bed throughout the week, the flexible structure of the program was more manageable for our busy family schedule. I was grateful that the professors were supportive and understanding throughout the program and assignments kept the learning relevant and engaging!”
