EduCativ Posted July 29, 2020 Share Posted July 29, 2020 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 Division of Arts, Division of Science, School of Business, and School of Education. We are one of 15 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). Western Canada experienced unprecedented growth during the first decade of the 20th century. Immigrants from Europe, the eastern provinces, and the United States followed the railroads westward. The growing population made it necessary to organize the territory into provinces. Alberta gained its provincial status in 1905, and two years later, a group of Seventh-day Adventist laypersons and church leaders established a school for their youth near Leduc, Alberta. Burman University traces its roots to this first Alberta Seventh-day Adventist secondary school. Overlooking miles of the surrounding countryside and consisting of campus and over 1,200 acres of farmland, the present location of the University on a hilltop in Lacombe, Alberta, was chosen as the permanent site for the secondary school in 1909. This high school has continued to operate until the present and now has the name Parkview Adventist Academy. Burman University will be the school of choice for those students who desire a quality education in a Christian setting that values individual achievement and the spirit of community renewal.
