Humanities

Get introduced to a wide world of people, cultures, and ideas.

Study broadly across the Humanities disciplines: English, history, philosophy, theology, and more. As our students engage with diverse topics and perspectives, we encourage them to know what is true and love what is good. To that end, our program includes significant biblical and theological grounding alongside study in their concentration.

Students taking Humanities at Briercrest develop the communication skills and love for learning they need to excel in many fields. These skills are especially valuable in marketplace settings, graduate-level study, and many kinds of ministry.

Learn to read thoughtfully, write skillfully, and think carefully in a community that seeks God’s Kingdom first. View our programs below.

Summer 2019 faculty reading list
Posted: April 23, 2019

Special Faculty Blog alert: we asked staff and faculty members to recommend some of their favourite books. Start your summer reading with a pick from your Briercrest Faculty reading list... and try not to miss your profs too much.

I met a lot of professors who truly cared about their students. They taught us with great dignity and respect. I appreciate all of the faculty members that I took classes with. I will continue to keep in touch with some of the ones I connected with.
