Founded in 1962 by dedicated people with an extraordinary vision, Trinity Western University (TWU) has grown over the years to become Canada’s premier Christian university and the largest liberal arts university in the country.
Everything we do is rooted in our commitment to providing a whole-person education—one that develops godly Christian leaders who will find and fulfill their purpose in life and use their future careers to create lasting positive change in the world around them.
In addition to robust academic programs, we have always strived to provide the kind of nurturing campus community, life-changing service and research opportunities, unforgettable friendships, and meaningful faith explorations that will shape students in ways they never could have imagined.
Trinity Western is chartered by the Province of British Columbia to grant baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees. TWU offers 48 undergraduate degrees and 19 graduate degrees, including programs in business administration, nursing, counselling psychology, education, computing science, theology, and many more. We also offer continuing education, degree completion, and leadership development through our certificate and online learning programs. No matter what program you choose, our chief goal is to support, inspire, and equip you for success and personal growth.
Our mission is to develop godly Christian leaders: positive, goal-oriented university graduates with thoroughly Christian minds; growing disciples of Jesus Christ who glorify God through fulfilling the Great Commission, serving God and people in the various marketplaces of life. We’re passionately committed to helping you discover how to be fully and faithfully present in the world and to play a vital role in God’s work of healing, hope, and renewal.
Our main campus spans 157 acres and is located only 45 minutes from downtown Vancouver.
