    It’s been our mission to help people forge their educational paths, however unconventional, since the day we were founded.

    From professional advancement to personal development, we know that the key to growth is finding a community where you can be challenged and supported in equal measure.

    Launch Experience

    The chief purpose of graduate work is not to stock the student's mind with knowledge of what has already been accomplished in a given field, but rather so to train the student that the student may be able to push out along new lines of investigation.

    The University of Chicago's unique approach to education is what allows our students to design their own futures.

    Programs for every path

    Our specially-selected degree and certificate programs offer access to world-class faculty, flexible course formats, and a diverse community of fellow knowledge-seekers.

    The Chicago Difference

    The University of Chicago is home to the first university-based continuing education program in the United States.

    A Rigorous Environment

    An emphasis on critical thinking, open debate, and challenging your status quo exemplify what we call the Chicago Approach.

    A Global Presence

    Broadening access to education doesn’t stop in our home city—we also offer programs remotely and at our campuses in Hong Kong, London, Paris, New Delhi, and Beijing.
