All students expecting to graduate from Northwestern College choose at least one major—maybe two—and perhaps a minor. A career concentration may be added to your major if you want to focus your learning toward particular career opportunities. For example, a sociology major interested in applying to the FBI could add a criminal justice career concentration, which includes course requirements in law, political science and psychology.
Northwestern’s 6 career concentrations have been designed with the advice of professionals in those careers. Most of the career concentrations include a senior-year, off-campus internship.
*The program adviser's department is in parentheses. In some cases, the career concentration must be paired with a prescribed major. In other cases, one of several majors supports the career concentration.
