Adult Undergraduate Individual Courses

Pursue professional or personal development with classes designed with busy professionals in mind.
Adult undergraduate students in the classroom

At Northwestern, you have the opportunity to take up to 16 credits of individual adult undergraduate courses without enrolling in a specific program.

These are great options for personal development, taking classes at Northwestern before declaring a major, or fulfilling course requirements for other institutions.

Taking an individual course gives you full access to Northwestern's excellent curriculum that is both academically rigorous and Christ-centered. You will receive full credit for the courses you complete which may be applied to a program later if you so choose.

Courses Available

Individual courses are available in all adult undergraduate areas of study.
