Established in 1965 as Algoma University College, an affiliate of Laurentian University, they have been educating the people of Northern Ontario for over 50 years. In 2008, they were granted their charter, becoming an independent degree-granting institution.
They offer over 30 different academic programs, spanning the liberal arts, sciences, and professional disciplines. All of their programs offer undergraduate research opportunities and hands-on learning. Classes are capped at 75 students, even in first year, meaning that you have more one-on-one interactions with their knowledgeable and caring faculty. Their faculty will know you on a first name basis and will work hard to make your dreams a success, both inside and outside of the classroom. Personal attention and a commitment to your success are the cornerstones of an Algoma degree. Algoma University offers a unique, one-of-a-kind undergraduate education. They are proud of providing their students with the best learning environment, which they like to call the Algoma Advantage: small class sizes, one-on-one interactions with their dedicated faculty, endless support services, great research opportunities, and plenty of chances to get involved inside and outside of the classroom.
Algoma University is located in the heart of the Great Lakes in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. With under 1,600 students, they are the smallest university in Ontario and the only post-secondary institution in the province strictly for undergraduate students. Over 27 per cent of their student body comes from outside of Canada from over 30 different countries around the globe. They embrace and foster diversity and they appreciate each person’s uniqueness and differences. They have a multi-faith prayer room allowing you to continue to practice and exercise your beliefs in a safe and welcoming environment. They also hold cultural events year round allowing you to share your culture and traditions with others.
