Overview

Redeemer students are being shaped by the Reformed Christian commitment to see faith woven through all aspects of learning and life. From the classroom to the convocation stage to careers and churches, our faculty, students and alumni are making an impact that resounds in our culture and across the world.

Situated in Ancaster, Ontario, our campus provides a beautiful environment in which to study and learn. We have been enjoying theatre events, concerts, art exhibitions, sporting events, and lecture series as well as conferring degrees and diplomas. At Redeemer, there is always something happening to challenge the mind and the senses, and to bring glory to God.

Our academic programs in the fine arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences, as well as in business and teacher education, are taught in the context of a commitment to a comprehensive vision of Christ’s lordship and redemptive work.

University education is a lifetime investment and a degree from Redeemer is a catalyst and a launchpad for students who want to change the world. From the classroom to the convocation stage to careers and churches, our faculty, students and alumni are making an impact that resounds in our culture and across the world.

Redeemer operates under a charter from the Government of Ontario and is a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).

Redeemer is an interdenominational institution with students representing more than 50 different denominations. Our mission statement is based on the Reformed Christian tradition.

We welcome students who, through their previous studies or experiences, have demonstrated the ability to succeed and are interested in the mission and purpose of Redeemer.

Students can take advantage of a wide range of financial aid options such as scholarships, bursaries, on-campus employment, and government assistance programs.

Redeemer faculty conduct high quality research in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The new Centre for Christian Scholarship supports original research among our talented faculty and extends their influence in the public square. The Centre has three main branches: the Dooyeweerd Centre promotes Christian philosophical work, particularly that of Dutch philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd; the Pascal Centre collects and creates scholarly work on issues of religion and science; the Zylstra Program funds original scholarship by Redeemer faculty that is related to issues of public concern.
