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.

    Why Christian Higher Education?

    In a time when young adults are leaving the faith in overwhelming numbers, Christian education can make a difference in the lives of students—and in the Church.

Through my education, I have had my eyes opened to the radical call of the Gospel. Through the community, I have been given the opportunity to live this call out.
