Our educational ministry began in 1980 at the above location in Detroit Michigan, USA 

“The Most Affordable Way Ever, To Receive A Quality, Christ Centered, Education”

A HARVARD UNIVERSITY (or)  NORTHWESTERN CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY Degree may both be considered as earned degrees. The major difference is related to prestige and tuition expense. Few can afford the tuition to Harvard! Northwestern makes it possible for the financially challenged to earn a degree and acheive their potential.

Be Aware! In the educational world today, regional accreditation is not always a mandatory requirement especially for ministry related, non secular, avocations/ professions.

Recognition of your Northwestern Christian University degree:

NCU Degree programs provide a Theologically certified Degree, which is a legal degree and entitles the student who completes a Ph.D. or other NCU Doctoral Degrees to legally use the title Doctor in many geographical regions of the world. However, we are not a secular University and our education is not directed toward non ministry avocations. Our degrees are theologically accredited or determined educationally accountable and NCU credits may or may not be accepted by governmental authorities or other institutions. That is a decision to be made by specific authorities and institutions.

Concerning the Integrity of Northwestern Educational Programs:

President Gloria Arroyo of the Philippines received a degree from NCU in 2009. Numerous other famous people, Governors, Mayors, Generals, Colonels, Judges, University and College Presidents and Civic Leaders have received awards from Northwestern Christian University.

Northwestern’s educational programs are focused on ministry related avocations and are not designed for competency in fulfilling secular job requirements. However, having a degree, even a non regionally accredited 90-day theological degree, added to your resume, may be a valuable consideration in any job interview. Do you already have a Bachelor degree? Why not consider a Northwestern dual Master’s and Doctorate program. *View the earning chart below.
