Our Programs

The College of Professional Studies has long offered programs intended to help students start or advance their careers. Begun in 1966, our Flex-Track Program for Adults (formerly the Bachelor of Professional Studies program) offers undergraduate degrees both in the evening and online, with eight-week courses to help students earn their degrees at an accelerated pace while balancing work and family commitments. Within the Flex-Track Program for Adults, we offer relevant and focused majors in Criminal Justice, Interdisciplinary Studies, Organizational Communication, Organizational Leadership, Paralegal Studies, and Sustainability Studies. In the Fast-Track Program, we offer degrees in Business and Psychology.

The College of Professional Studies also offers a well-respected post-baccalaureate program in Paralegal Studies. The program celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014 and continues to be a leader in paralegal education in Chicago.

The college is also home to the Human and Community Renewal Program, which provides valuable life skills training for formerly incarcerated men and women to help them transition to productive lives.

Evelyn T. Stone

The College of Professional Studies is honored to bear the name of Evelyn T. Stone, an early supporter of Roosevelt University and a lifelong champion of education. Evelyn Stone fell victim to Alzheimer’s disease, and her husband, Jerome H. Stone, founded national and international organizations to help those who suffer from this condition. Mr. Stone was chairman emeritus of Roosevelt’s Board of Trustees. To recognize Evelyn Stone’s values, the college was named in her honor.
