Trinity Western University

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences


Dr. Bob Burkinshaw, Dean

The purpose of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is to produce compassionate and competent servant leaders through the development of cultural awareness, analytic powers, precise thought, religious knowledge, and research and communication skills all embedded in the unique perspective on life and learning offered by a Christian worldview. While graduates from this Faculty are expected to enter many kinds of professions and assume various positions of leadership within society, they are also expected to cherish the abilities which make humans unique in God’s creation, such as the capacities for speech, creativity, rationality, and knowledge of God. Faculty members desire that students become committed to fostering constructive relationships among people, regardless of religious, cultural, ethnic, geographic, physical, or other individual differences. They support students in their calling to assist others to live more meaningful, responsive, and responsible lives.
