History programs

Northwestern history classes attract students from other majors who also want to learn about fascinating events and periods like:

  • the ’60s
  • the Civil War
  • the Vietnam War
  • Nazi Germany and the Holocaust
  • Native American society and culture

There’s really no such thing as history recorded from a neutral point of view, so our professors study and teach history through the lens of the Christian faith while also appreciating and drawing on history written out of other perspectives.
