Northwest Nazarene University offers undergraduate degrees in 70 majors. Some majors provide an additional area of emphasis or concentration. A major within a single area of study generally requires 36-50 credits. An interdisciplinary major generally requires 40-60 credits. Majors with external accreditation or licensing requirements may have a higher credit requirement. A minimum of nine credits in the major must be unique to the major and may not be duplicated in a second major. The degree requirements for each major can be found in the Academic Departments chapter of this catalog.
Individualized Major: For students whose educational objectives cannot be met by one of the majors given above, an individualized major allows students to design a program of study. Each individualized major must be approved by the appropriate curriculum committee. For additional information, see the Special Programs chapter.
