About Us

About Northwest University

Northwest University is a regionally accredited, Christian institution awarding associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. Located in Kirkland, Washington, we have been preparing students to lead in their careers since 1934 and offer a variety of degree programs to meet the needs of an ever-changing society.

Our graduate programs integrate a Christian perspective that draws from the highest intellectual level and the depths of faith simultaneously. The programs are designed for busy working adults. Most classes meet at night on the Kirkland, Washington, campus (10 miles east of Seattle) and/or on weekends. Our traditional undergraduate experience includes over 70 majors and programs—as well as off-campus internships—to equip students for success in their careers. With our adult evening program, working adults can earn their degree by attending class on campus just one night each week. And our online degree programs provide the flexibility of classes that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
