Laurentian University

A dynamic and progressive university in the heart of Sudbury, Laurentian University offers 106 undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral programs. Our flexible degree structure means you can customize your major and minor studies to create a "modular degree" that is unique to your strengths and interests.

At Laurentian, small class sizes ensure you are treated as an individual and supported through your education. We offer programs you won't find elsewhere - like our Forensic Science programs, accredited by the Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC), and our Bachelor of Commerce in Sports Administration. 

Interested in Earth Sciences? The Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University offers some of the most comprehensive field- and laboratory-based Earth Science research and education programs in North America. What about design and architecture? Our state-of-the-art School of Architecture highlights design and culture for Northern Ontario, and houses our Bachelor of Architectural Studies and Master of Architecture.  

Not to mention, Laurentian has a tried, tested and true Faculty of Health that offers one-of-a-kind programs in Sports Psychology and Indigenous Social Work. Looking for a multidisciplinary program? Our Faculty of Arts offers open and flexible programs in Psychology, Criminology and Interdisciplinarity Studies to name a few.

Laurentian is a sound investment for the future with nearly 96% of our graduates finding employment. Our graduates benefit from hands-on work experience, integrated learning and up to 700 hours of lab experience to help them prepare for a career in their field.

Home to the Goodman School of Mines, we are your one-stop access point to the most comprehensive mining education available in Canada. What's more, we have a state-of-the-art Vale Living with Lakes international research centre, and a remarkable LEEDS-certified building on the shore of Lake Ramsey (the largest of several lakes on our beautiful 700-acre campus).

Our Bharti School of Engineering students will take full advantage of modern labs and state-of-the-art equipment and installations housed in the new 60,000 sq. ft. Cliff Fielding building. Laurentian is also the only university in Ontario that offers a 4+1 Concurrent Education program wherein the student can earn a 4-year honours degree and then a Bachelor of Education in just 1 additional year without studying through the summers. 

We are a bilingual university, committed to Indigenous learning, with a rapidly growing cohort of international students.
