Label Label Label


Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada), Booth University College is a Christian institution rooted in The Salvation Army's 150-year history of meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in society. Deeply committed to social justice, we blend Christian faith and rigorous scholarship with a passion for service. Our approach to learning is anchored in academic excellence and based on a vision of social justice, hope and mercy for all.

For today's changing world, students should be well-versed in literature, philosophy, history, religion, the fine arts and the social and physical sciences. With this foundation in place, our students are prepared to pursue knowledge in their chosen field of expertise. Whether that field is the humanities, the social sciences or a professional degree, exposure to the broad range of human knowledge makes our graduates better people and better citizens. The integration of this knowledge with a Christian world-view prepares our students to explore the boundaries of knowledge with courage and commitment.

With the mentoring care of committed professors and instructors, we expect our students to tackle the most difficult and complex issues of our day with hope and confidence.
