Career concentrations

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 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.
