We believe stepping outside your comfort zone is the first step toward uncovering what you’re made of. That’s why we push you to try new things, take on challenges and lead with a purpose to achieve more than you’ve ever imagined.
Across every school in the College of Health and Human Sciences, your education will take you beyond the classroom and into the field. With state-of-the-art clinics and labs, the Child Development and Family Center, hands-on internships and student organizations, we provide the experiential learning you need to impact lives on day one of your career.
Your success begins here.
We are very hands-on when we are in the clinic, from the very beginning. I've had external preceptors comment on how well-prepared NIU students are for clinic. We have the opportunity to explore our interests in our field through external rotations, conferences, guest speakers and humanitarian trips. It is really a well-rounded experience that has exceeded all of my expectations.
