Certificates, Endorsements and other Non-Degree Programs

Non-traditional Programs

Professionals at any level in their careers may need to or want to achieve higher ranking positions and keep up with evolving methodologies and technology within their field. However, such professionals may not necessarily want to pursue an advanced degree due to time, work or family commitments, or other reasons.

Lewis University offers various non-degree programs to help working students to continue their professional education in order to reach their career goals and stay up-to-date in their industry, without having to spend the amount of time and money it takes for a complete graduate degree.
