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.

A life-changing lecture?
Posted: September 25, 2018

About a month ago I attended a public lecture by the controversial professor, psychologist, and YouTube sensation Jordan Peterson. He's on a tour promoting 12 Rules for Life: an Antidote to Chaos, a best-selling book of moral advice.

All of my professors really know the Bible and have had a huge impact on my life by showing me how to humbly engage the text and let it have weight on my soul.
