More teachers earn a graduate degree at National Louis University than any other college or university in Illinois. And our M.A. in Psychology is the largest non-clinical program in the state. Those are big numbers for a close-knit, personal university like NLU. We are proud of our highly respected graduate programs in education, business and the arts and sciences, but even prouder of our students. NLU graduates are community leaders who are using their NLU education to improve the lives of others.
