Providence University College & Seminary
Our picturesque campus is located just outside Winnipeg, Manitoba and is nestled against a winding river, among fields of wheat and corn. With a population of nearly 800,000 people, Winnipeg offers all the amenities of big-city life, including award-winning restaurants and a thriving arts scene. Students without a vehicle of their own can take our shuttle into the city each weekend.
Providence students pursue Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degrees, as well as numerous Certificate types, in fields ranging from Church Ministries to Business, from Sociology to Counselling. Our Buller School of Business also offers a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, and our new Biology program is delivered in a brand-new facility. Many of our Seminary courses can be pursued through Distance Education.
Our current students and alumni tell us community life at Providence is formative and life changing. It all begins with our Welcome Week activities in September (we had The City Harmonic on campus to perform a free concert last year) and continues through to the spring. In between our students enjoy varied meals from an ever-changing menu and participate in events such as a film festival, games nights and coffee houses. Oh, and we have a hot tub.
Providence graduates are difference-makers all over the world, whether at tech start-ups in Germany, TESOL postings in Romania, churches in Myanmar, refugee camps in South Sudan, bible schools in Paraguay, counselling clinics right here in Canada and businesses here, there and everywhere. One of our former students is currently Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba. Providence graduates are sought after, and we’re extremely proud of what they accomplish after departing our campus.
All undergraduate students fulfill a Field Education requirement, often in local thrift shops, outreach centres and churches. Musically inclined students also have the opportunity to join one of our two praise and worship bands and go on tour in Manitoba and neighbouring provinces. Each February our Mission Dei event—organized by students—turns our Student Life Centre into a missions conference, and our Mile Two Discipleship School takes students to service placements in downtown Winnipeg and on a journey to the Holy Land of Israel.
At Providence our entire community—students, faculty and staff—learn, grow and worship together. We’d love for you to be a part it, and we’d be honoured to give you the academic and spiritual tools to be a difference-maker for Christ in an ever-changing world.
