At Northwestern we make a commitment to our partner's employees and congregations to create a positive environment where people can grow and thrive.

Our programs offer a culture of support for adult students that enables them to achieve academic success and reach their goals. All of our adult undergraduate and graduate degree programs incorporate biblical principles and explore ethics relevant to today’s workplace.

New degree-seeking and/or certificate students who are employed by a Northwestern partner are eligible for a discount off the adult undergraduate and graduate programs.
