Paving your path to success

The University offers a wealth of resources to support its diverse student body, including career counseling and free access to family-friendly programs.


Pioneering a lifetime of learning

Professional education has been central to the University since its inception. UChicago is home to the first university-based continuing education program in the country, and our founding President, William Rainey Harper, made expanding access to continuous learning a cornerstone of the institution.

Strength in Numbers

We've been providing top-tier professional education for more than 125 years. From our Nobel prize-winners to our vast alumni network, studying at the University of Chicago means joining a community with a long history of being extraordinary.
