    The mission of NCU is to develop competent, ethical leaders for service in the workplace, community, Church & world. Undergraduate majors include biology, communications, English, exercise science, history, mathematics, psychology, accounting, business administration, music, education & theology.

    Wisdom goes deeper than knowledge. Faith is central in experience. And Service is inspirational in purpose and action. At NCU, students become critical thinkers, and are encouraged to explore, discover and grow within the context of a Christ-centered community, all while seeking opportunities for servant leadership in career, family, church, and community.

    For more than 110 years students have been coming to Northwest Christian University to learn, grow, and lead. Our academic programs prepare you not only for graduate schools and careers, they are designed, in the liberal arts tradition, to develop critical thought. NCU has been ranked among the top comprehensive colleges in the West by U.S. News and World Report.

    At Northwest Christian University, education and faith are closely linked. After all, education requires the exercise of faith and reason. Both of which are quests  that lead to the one Source of all Truth: God.

    Northwest Christian University is in the business of developing leaders informed, guided, and inspired by the Word of God. All of us are called to be leaders by contributing our gifts and God-given abilities to improve the world.

    Northwest Christian University prepares you for life's challenges and opportunities. Here, you'll expand your knowledge and skills to develop your gift, talents and capacities - body, mind, and spirit.

    As a Christian institution of higher learning, we are committed to being a caring, welcoming community characterized by diversity, inclusiveness, respect for all people, and a passion for social justice.

    Important learning experiences extend beyond our campus. Through regional, national, and global missions trips, urban outreach and community service projects, as well as other service learning opportunities, our students experience the joys and challenges of ministry, discipleship, missions and service to the community and to the world. Some of the most life-changing moments occur when you see firsthand the needs of the world.
