In addition to its Langley campus, TWU offers programs through its Laurentian Leadership Centre in Ottawa (ON), TWU Bellingham campus in Bellingham (Washington), and Crow’s Nest Ecological Research Centre on Salt Spring Island (BC).
As a small Liberal Arts university, TWU provides opportunities for students that are not available at large institutions. These opportunities include participating with faculty members in funded research projects.

TWU researchers conduct research on a range of social and health issues of concern to Canadians. TWU professors hold three Canada Research Chairs that illustrate the unique areas of expertise found at TWU. The Chair in Developmental Genetics and Disease is part of a growing program in biotechnology, focusing on areas such as cancer research and neurodegenerative disorders by studying cell signaling pathways. The Chair in Dead Sea Scrolls Studies highlights the world-class scholarly work being done in the areas of religion and Biblical studies. The Chair in Religion, Culture and Interpretation demonstrates the interdisciplinary approach of TWU, combining philosophy, theology and literature to investigate the impact of religion on cultural ethics.
