Northwest Passages is the student history journal at the University of Portland and is sponsored by the Rho Pi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society. Published in the spring of each year since 2000, each edition of the journal includes several senior theses as well as a diverse sample of smaller papers completed in history courses offered throughout the academic year. The writings are selected by the editorial team which is staffed entirely by students. Each year over the past six years, the journal has received recognition in a national journal competition, the Gerald D. Nash History Journal Award, sponsored by Phi Alpha Theta.
