The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) at National Louis University was created with a clear purpose: to provide a superior education in the social and behavioral sciences, as well as the humanities, for career-focused college students and working adults. We offer bachelor's degrees in the arts and sciences and social and behavioral sciences, as well as master's and doctoral degrees in service-oriented professions like psychology, adult education and counseling and an M.A. in Written Communication. Service is at the center of our mission: to be a resource and support to non-traditional students and supply them with the tools to become leaders in their community.

- Access – We have always opened our doors to non-traditional and underserved student populations, including non-native English speakers, older students, and those who need extra help and support to get their degree. There is a place for you at CAS.
- Service – Under the leadership of Dean Chris Cassirer, Sc.D., our mission is to educate and train a diverse spectrum of students to give back to their communities.
