History isn't just about times, places, and people from a distant past. History helps us understand the present and its challenges, bringing them — and the human experience — into sharper focus. When you choose Northwest University's history major, you'll join a vibrant community of scholars, gaining a breadth of knowledge and analytical skills that will serve you well in any career path. And by looking into the past for the wisdom it can offer, you'll be well prepared to navigate your future.
A degree from NU can help you launch your career immediately after graduation. Some of the fields that a degree in history can open up for you include:
Assistant Professor of History
"In an age of the exponential growth of data, intrusive, persuasive, manipulative, assertive, and too often unverifiable if not intentionally deceitful, men and women seeking an effective filter, and a truly Christian order and understanding of these times, will only find it if they possess a right understanding of the past. Our motto is "From Chaos, Order" and rightly so. Only an interpretive schema rooted in a Biblical anthropology, and tried and tested against the full record of the human experience, will provide the insights necessary to see beyond our contemporary cultural blinders to the universality of the Church, its eternality and temporality, and our place in the ongoing march of the Gospel. The past is predicate for the present, if rightly understood, and in an era when the meta-narrative has been deconstructed and fallen from academic favor, when so many voices compete to explain their small piece of the puzzle, we proudly proclaim at Northwest, that we speak to all the pieces. History at NU, From Chaos, Order."
