In 2002, the University of Guelph-Humber was established as a partnership between the University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning. The university is situated in one the world's most diverse cities, Toronto. All courses are taught to a university level by expert lecturers and small class sizes in modern classrooms allow for focused learning with students regularly interacting with their peers and lecturers. In addition, there are clubs, societies and sports teams that students can become a member of – there is something for everyone.
Programs are delivered using a blended approach that combines theory and field experience, which develops knowledge and applied skills that are required for employment. A unique research assistantship program sees undergraduate students working as paid research assistants along with faculty on research projects, giving students a rare opportunity to hone their research skills and boost their employability.
The university offers seven four-year undergraduate programs: Business, Early Childhood Studies, Family and Community Social Services, Justice Studies, Kinesiology, Media Studies and Psychology. Students graduate with an Honors degree granted by the University of Guelph and a diploma granted by Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning. Students at Guelph-Humber can earn a university honors degree and a college diploma in four years of full-time study.
