Western University – Huron University College
Established in 1863, Huron is the founding institution of Western University. Our Liberal Arts University offers an elite, yet accessible, education where personalized learning experiences position students for professional success, while also developing their character.
Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement. With an average class size of just 30, Huron students enjoy lots of interaction with professors and classmates. Those who graduate from Huron receive a Western University degree.
While studying at Huron, each student can take advantage of paid internships, professional networking events and more. In addition to paid internships, Huron’s vision is to ensure that every student experiences the value of civic engagement through volunteer activities and service prior to graduating.
Through our Career Accelerator Program (CAP), students can engage with modernized career readiness practices and upon successful completion, receive a Career Accelerator Program Certificate and a letter of recommendation. CAP students will receive essential unconscious bias training and become well-versed in inclusivity practices to foster more representative industries. Core program components include mapping career objectives, experiencing a paid internship, taking part in a meaningful volunteer opportunity, engaging in a formal mentorship and more.
Huron also offers Dual Degree programs with the Ivey Business School at Western. Students can complete Ivey's HBA program and a BA Degree in an Honors Specialization module over a span of 5 years. Students can combine their undergraduate program at Huron with a program at any of the campuses within Western, giving students flexibility and choice. Huron has been challenging students to be Leaders with Heart since 1863.
