A medical-doctoral, research-intensive university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, learning and service.

Home to more than 70 research centres and institutes, McMaster is comprised of the Arts & Science Program and six Faculties: The DeGroote School of Business, and the Faculties of Engineering, Health Sciences, Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences.

The university?s athletic facilities include the Ronald Joyce Stadium, the Ivor Wynne Centre, the David Braley Athletic Centre, nine gymnasiums, an Olympic-sized pool, 200m indoor track, squash courts, a climbing wall, the David Braley Sport Medicine and Rehabilitation Centre, and one of the largest university fitness centres in Canada.

McMaster University is in the beautiful, eclectic city of Hamilton, Ontario. With a population of over 500,000, Hamilton is the fourth largest city in Ontario, within an hour drive from Toronto, Niagara Falls and the U.S. border.
