One-Year Programs

Prioritize your faith without compromising on academics.

Start with Briercrest and get a firm grounding in the Bible before continuing your education. One-year programs at Briercrest are designed to be highly transferrable, whether into a degree program at Briercrest or further studies at another institution.

Whether they are studying online, studying at Camp Qwanoes, or studying on our campus, we encourage our students to invest deeply in the Christian community around them and grow in their faith as they study.

Beginning with a one-year certificate can be the perfect context to prepare academically, socially, and spiritually for further studies or new directions. View our one-year certificates below.

I have learned so much beyond the classroom and been shaped by the school and staff. I have had faculty point out skills and characteristics that I possess and help me enhance them for better self-development and future career opportunities.
