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 acknowledges that we are located on Treaty 6 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Regions 2, 3 and 4 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
