For 115 years,
a small community with big potential.
Burman University is accredited by the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) offering Campus Alberta Quality Council (CAQC) approved bachelor degree programs. We offer over 35 major or track choices in bachelor degree programs in our Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (including the School of Business and School of Education) and our Faculty of Science. We are one of 13 Adventist universities in North America, but we are the only Seventh-day Adventist university in Canada. We are sponsored by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Canada (SDACC).
Burman University is located within hereditary Indigenous land and acknowledges that the land on which we gather is Treaty 6 territory, established in 1876, the traditional home, and meeting ground for many First Nations Peoples, including the Blackfoot, Dene, Cree, and Métis. Burman University is committed to doing its part to address the legacy of broken promises and rebuild productive, partnership relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Central Alberta and across Canada.
