Are you known by the company you keep?
When you pursue your master’s degree here, you’ll be in good company. Our graduate students choose Northwestern for their education because we are Christ-centered and so are they.
Students invest in one another as they work on projects and spend time together in class. Balancing full-time work, families and careers is something most students have in common. You'll find support for the things you need to juggle to make your education work.
Your professors bring their faith to the classroom. They know that prayer is essential for them as they teach and for students as they learn.
The value of Christian community at Northwestern
“When I tell people about Northwestern, I talk about the spiritual aspect of it. Coming into class and being able to sit down and pray, or do devotionals, centers you. You’re able to just unload and get filled up with the Spirit—and that is so unlike anyplace else that I have experienced! It really prepares you for getting ready for the information you’re going to get; you put aside all of the chaos of the day. I think that’s powerful.”
Andrea, Master of Arts in Human Services
Meet friends and future colleagues whether your classes are on campus or online
“I’ve enjoyed the cohort and the camaraderie that we have. I feel so close knit to the other participants in the cohort. Being in the same classes and just the overall group discussion. I love the dynamics of online as well as in class."
Darlene, Master of Arts in Education

Graduate students are encouraged to participate in community life by attending plays and concerts, taking in athletic events or hearing guest lecturers. Check what Jon Acuff, Laurie Bolthouse and Lee Strobel shared while on campus.
Why not start something?
Busy with work and school? Plan some stress relief! Take a cohort study break to serve together at Feed My Starving Children or a food shelf. Thriving in Christian community and investing in others is a hallmark of your Northwestern experience.
