Founded in 1968, Regent College was the first graduate school of theology in North America to make the education of the laity its central focus. Our Christ-centred programs and courses bring together vibrant evangelical faith and rigorous academics, cultivating intelligent, vigorous, and joyful commitment to Jesus Christ, His church, and His world.
Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. It enjoys the mildest weather of any major city in Canada, along with excellent restaurants, an active cultural scene, and jaw-dropping scenery. With a beautiful natural setting and a culturally diverse population, Vancouver provides plenty of opportunities for exploration.
Regent College is an international and transdenominational community, welcoming students from over 20 countries and 30 denominations. Staff and faculty are warm and approachable, and the student community is diverse and supportive. New students can plug into community by participating in the college-wide Fall Retreat and joining a weekly fellowship group.

Practicums & Internships
Regent’s commitment to an integrated practice of faith and life has led to the development of a number of hands-on training opportunities. These include Supervised Ministry, Arts Internships, World Christianity Field Immersion, Go Global courses, and Marketplace Field Immersion. Interdisciplinary tracks typically culminate in an Integrative Project exploring the practical implications of the student’s learning.
The Regent College Student Association is a hub for extracurricular engagement. The RCSA organizes several community-wide events, including cultural celebration Taste of the World, end-of-year party L’Chaim, and an annual Christmas bash. Students also enjoy lunchtime concerts in the atrium, soaking prayer in the chapel, and art exhibits in the Lookout Gallery.
