Creatio: Where Art and Technology Meet Faith

We're excited to announce that construction will soon begin on a hub for students in the Creatio Center for Technology, Media, and Design. This hub will include a brand-new lounge, classroom, and state of the art design studio. These new spaces will foster creativity and growth in our students by encouraging collaboration and providing them with the tools that today's top designers are using. With all of this and more at our students' disposal, we're confident our graduates will be able to hit the ground running wherever they get hired.

About the Creatio Center for Technology, Media, and Design

Over the years, Northwest University has become a hub for all kinds of creative people. Musicians, designers, photographers, and others continue to make their mark on our campus while they prepare for their chosen careers. As a Christian university, we believe that all of us are made in the image of a creative God and so we understand the inherent value in human creativity. The Creatio Center was designed from the beginning with that in mind, and over the last ten years, we have built a reputation for expressing that creativity in our world class audio production programs.

Based on this success, we have expanded our Creatio offerings to include new and unique degrees in technology and design. Through the Creatio Center for Technology, Media, and Design our hope is to empower students with a passion for creativity to become leaders in the areas of advanced technology and media production. Our flagship programs* will include bachelor’s degrees in User Experience Design, Audio Production, and Video Production. And because the pace of technology innovation is accelerating at an ever-increasing rate, Creatio will continue to evolve. Most importantly, each of our programs will be completed within the framework of a distinctly Christian environment.

If your hope is to craft a dream career in an exciting area of technology or media production, we are confident that Creatio has the perfect program for you.

*The degree programs in Creatio are launching for freshman in Fall 2020 and anticipated for transfers by Fall 2021.
