Northwest Nazarene University offers 70 majors, 11 co-majors, and 43 minors through 17 academic departments.

In order to earn a bachelor's degree, a student must complete one major or two co-majors. Although a minor is not required, it provides a well-defined set of courses identifying a secondary area of expertise.

Education involves not only the mind, but the development of the whole person, including the use of one's body, the management of emotions, the development of independence, the establishment of identity, and the development of purpose and integrity. Northwest Nazarene University is committed to the development of the whole person through the opportunities provided by a residential campus setting.

The commitment to the development of the whole person finds reality in numerous organized activities and programs including counseling and guidance, resident life programs, spiritual development, chapel, health services, social, recreational, and leisure time activities, intercollegiate and intramural sports programs, and a productive system of student government.
