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.

My experience at Briercrest exceeded getting an education. My heart and mind were transformed as I met God in the classrooms, the dorms, and chapel. I never anticipated seeing God so clearly through my studies.
