Throughout Briercrest’s 80-year history we have continually committed to providing high-quality post-secondary education. We have worked closely with our provincial government and accrediting agencies to ensure that you will receive a recognized, effective education.
Province of Saskatchewan
Briercrest College was founded in 1935 and is chartered by the Government of Saskatchewan as a degree-granting educational institution (1939, 1974).
See the province’s Briercrest College and Seminary Act.
The Association of Biblical Higher Education
Beginning in 1976, all Briercrest’s degree programs are accredited with the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). ABHE is a well-recognized North American accrediting agency made up of approximately two hundred post-secondary institutions. ABHE holds its member institutions accountable on rigorous academic and institutional standards.
Saskatchewan Higher Education Quality Assurance Board
Since 2013, several of our degree programs have undergone additional external reviews through the Saskatchewan Higher Education Quality Assurance Board (SHEQAB) and have been recognized as meeting university-level standards.
These degrees, which we refer to as “SHEQAB-authorized” are our Bachelor of Arts Humanities, Bachelor of Arts English, and Bachelor of Arts English (Honours) degrees.
