Trinity Western University
Because you’re looking to seamlessly integrate your values into your career and your life and need the knowledge and skills to excel. Because you want to use your talents to help people and positively impact your community and the world. Because you want an educational experience that engages both heart and mind.
We’re 45 minutes from the city of Vancouver (pop: 2,463,431), and just 5 minutes from the historic town of Fort Langley (pop: 3,400)—home to trendy cafes and shops, a real fort (!), and Trinity Western House, a community space where students can hang out, use free wi-fi, and watch live-streamed Spartans games on big screens.
One of the things that sets TWU apart is the intentional community fostered here. Every day offers a new opportunity for students to get involved in a ministry, club or team, have meaningful conversations about life and school, and make new friends—to become the fullest version of who God has made them to be.
TWU offers 47 undergraduate and 19 graduate degree programs, plus adult completion, extension programs, ACTS Seminaries, and ESLi. Our whole-person education centres on a liberal arts core curriculum that includes history, English, philosophy, religious studies, social sciences, natural sciences, and human kinetics. This interdisciplinary exposure develops the critical thinking and adaptation skills that our rapidly changing world requires.
Practicums & Internships
In today’s marketplace, students often need to find ways to differentiate themselves and gain practical experience even before graduating. TWU offers students experiential learning, opportunities through internships, practicums, volunteer roles, and on-campus employment—so they can gain practical experience in their area of interest and be better prepared to enter and immediately impact their field.
Whether you’re passionate about sports or the outdoors, helping others or building your leadership skills — there are tons of ways to get involved in TWU life outside of the class. Running an award-winning student newspaper, travelling the world with one of our choirs or planning outreach to those in need are just a few examples.
TWU is a powerhouse in athletics. Eleven-time U-Sports champions and 23-time Canada West champions, our TWU Spartans have won a national championship in at least one sport, 10 years running. We also sent five star athletes to the Rio Olympics in 2016. Proportionately, that puts us ahead of the province’s largest university.
Students are encouraged to find an outreach opportunity that’s right for them, to use their talents to change lives for Christ. From Bible study, to chapel band, to serving on a missions team to countries like Haiti, Israel, or Cambodia — there are lots of ways for students to help others while growing in their faith.
Our legacy of more than 27,000 alumni are making a positive difference in the marketplace, in over 80 countries worldwide. They have an education that gives them expertise in their fields, and tools and resources to be thinkers, influencers, and leaders in society and in the fields of nursing, education, business, human kinetics, sciences, and the arts and media.
