Health Sciences

Prepare for work as a competent and compassionate health care professional.

Students in Health Sciences at Briercrest are equipped both academically and spiritually for careers in health care. Our programs all begin at Briercrest, where students can take the courses they need from a biblical perspective and grow as followers of Jesus. Building on this foundation, students transfer to our partner institutions to continue their training in health sciences.

Students graduate and pursue health care careers in places such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, the criminal justice system, employee assistance programs, schools, ministries, and non-profit organizations.

Make Some Noise
Posted: February 8, 2016

Briercrest Athletics teamed up with the ACAC and the Canadian Mental Health Association to "Make Some Noise" in an effort to promote mental wellness.

God has used Briercrest to catalyze His redemptive work within me and I'm simply awestruck when I compare the past and present state of my heart. It's truly a divine miracle that my soul is now able to enjoy such freedom, joy, love, and grace.
