Dear Friends of SCS,
These are exciting times at Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies. Our reach was once limited by geography but today, thanks to the very best technology, our educational programs are offered to students nationally and even internationally. As we prepare for another graduation celebration and the awarding of a record number of master’s degrees, new online graduate degrees in such areas as Predictive Analytics and Integrated Marketing and Communications are bringing more and more students to SCS.
Our growth has demanded that SCS remain current and accessible in every way possible. We continue to focus on the needs of adult learners — their educational needs, career prospects and the circumstances that often challenge them while engaging in their studies. We think analytically and creatively about the modes of curriculum delivery that allow working adults to shift time and space. We blend traditional learning methods with new multimedia and utilize technology to help deliver rich and engaging course content that supports a thorough mastery of information.
We continually review and improve our program offerings, support services and internal processes to make sure we’re bringing the best value and highest quality education to our students. It is my goal to ensure that your education at SCS is a superior learning experience and our learning community is as supportive as possible to assist you in attaining your goals. That is my promise, our promise, to each of our students.
With warmest regards,
Thomas F. Gibbons,
Dean, Northwestern University School of Continuing Studies
