About the School for Professional Studies
Degrees for Busy Adults
Saint Louis University School for Professional Studies offers busy adults convenient access to academic and professional programs.
SLU is a Jesuit, Catholic university ranked among the top research institutions in the nation. The University fosters the intellectual and character development of more than 13, 000 students on campuses in St. Louis and Madrid, Spain. Founded in 1818, it is the oldest university west of the Mississippi and the second oldest Jesuit university in the United States.
As a Jesuit institution, SLU has a longstanding, nearly 200-year-old tradition of serving students of all ages. SLU enhanced its focus on adult students in 1963 when it launched one of the first schools in the country dedicated to adult learners. Since then, the School for Professional Studies has evolved into one of the most innovative, adult-focused programs in the country.
