Philosophy and Religion Degree

It’s a big world out there, and no single school of thought captures it all. We can measure the world mathematically, yet we’re more than numbers. We can know our biology and not our hearts. We can understand psychology and miss the soul.

With a philosophy and religion degree from NWU you will have a fuller picture, a better understanding and a more complete truth. That’s what makes the study of philosophy and religion essential parts of your full liberal arts education.

No matter where your career takes you—the truth matters. NWU philosophy and religion majors receive more tools to pursue truth—to explore it, examine it, test it and appreciate it. And we see your pursuit of the truth as the key to a life worth living for.

Get amazing results.

NWU philosophy and religion is all about added meaning. Philosophy adds a depth of perspective. And faith adds a dimension of purpose.

Added meaning is what makes a philosophy and religion degree popular choices among students with multiple majors. They add another quality to any other major you might choose.

NWU Philosophy and Religion alumni use their understanding of faith and philosophy in careers as varied as business, foreign policy, social work and law. Our philosophy and religion majors also compete well for prestige awards like the Fulbright Scholarship and land positions in the field’s top graduate programs, seminaries and divinity schools.
