Overview

Overview

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.

With a day-long orientation and other new student events, international students are supported in their transition.

Students have an academic advisor to assist with program-related questions and study guidance a field placement coordinator to support them through placement and a career services coordinator to help with employment and career guidance.

Toronto Ontario 207 Humber College Blvd.
The University of Guelph-Humber was the first in Ontario to offer an opportunity to earn both a university honours degree and diploma in four years of full-time study in one location when UofGH opened its doors in 2002. Years later, what continues to make UofGH unique is the integration of theory and workplace experience in all of its programs. A collaboration between the University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, UofGH was founded on the principle of integrating experiential learning opportunities into the traditional academic curriculum.

The university offers various programs in the disciplines such as business, health, education, media studies, psychology etc. With only 4,900 students at the University, students will be a part of a close-knit group of students, staff and professors. The average class size is 49 students. They will be recognized on campus and welcomed. Because the University is located on Humber?s North Campus in Toronto and it share facilities with Humber, students are part of a larger community of 20,000 Humber students.

The University of Guelph-Humber and Humber College are located within the traditional and treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. Known as Adoobiigok, the ?Place of the Black Alders? in the Mississauga language, the region is uniquely situated along the Humber River Watershed, which historically provided an integral connection for Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat peoples between the Ontario lakeshore and the Lake Simcoe/Georgian Bay regions.
