When you choose NU's Religion and Philosophy major, you'll join a vibrant learning community that has an 80-year history of equipping Christian leaders with relevant biblical and career training—and you'll be part of a rich, yet relevant, legacy of study and discourse that has stood the test of time.
"I thoroughly enjoyed studying Religion and Philosophy at Northwest University. I remain very much informed and influenced by the training in philosophy at Northwest as I approach my theological studies in seminary. Not only did my professors challenge me to think critically, but they cared about who I was as a person too. This has made a significant impact on me as I hope to teach others in the future."
