More on the Department of Fine and Performing Arts


The faculty and staff in the history and social sciences department are the most interesting and helpful people I’ve met at Northwest. They are always willing to assist students with any class, and they are incredibly supportive of any student. Plus, they have some of the best experiences or advice I’ve ever heard! It’s so nice being able to create personal and professional connections with any professor — even if I’ve never taken their class!
