The learning environment at Briercrest College and Seminary equips students to become leaders in ministry and marketplace roles. Briercrest is deeply committed to academic excellence and intentional discipleship.

Briercrest is located about 15 minutes west of the city of Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw is home to a variety of ethnic restaurants and locally owned coffee shops, where many students go to work off campus. There are a number of tourist attractions students enjoy, including the Moose Jaw tunnels and the Temple Gardens mineral spa.
Because our students live in the dorm their first three years, the dorm community becomes an integral aspect of the social experience and a highlight for many of our students. The dorms provide an opportunity to build tight-knit relationships, be part of a community focused on discipleship, and have a ton of fun!

Briercrest has a number of partnerships with other institutions to give our students more flexibility to invest in both their faith and their career.
Practicums & Internships
Many of our programs offer internships, practicums, or co-op placements that are specific to the field students are entering. Not only does this provide a taste of the job, but it offers relevant work experience and connects the student with others working in the field. Those connections often become important as students explore job options.

It also helps you grow to become a well-rounded individual and gain leadership and interpersonal skills.
Students have the opportunity to be involved with sports like hockey, softball, volleyball, basketball, soccer and others, at the various levels they are offered: varsity, junior varsity, club, and intramural. Whether you’re looking pursue your sport at a high caliber or play recreationally, our athletic programs equip students to grow both as athletes and as disciples of Jesus.

Regardless of your major, you’re equipped to live missionally and take Jesus into the world.
Attending a Christian college isn’t just for those wanting to pursue vocational ministry. Many of students do go on to become pastors, professors, or missionaries. But we also have many students pursing marketplace disciplines in a Christ-centred community. Business, Music, Psychology, and Humanities are just a few of the career paths students can choose.
