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.
