Laurentian University

A dynamic and progressive university in the heart of Sudbury, Laurentian University offers more than 175 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's unique to your strengths and interests.

Laurentian has one of the best student-faculty ratios you'll find anywhere at 19:1 and 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?  A new $30 million School of Architecture that highlights design and culture for Northern Ontario 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 Indigenous Studies to name a few.

Laurentian is a sound investment for the future with nearly 95% of our graduates finding employment. Our graduates benefit from hands on work experience, integrated learning, and up to 700 hours of hands-on lab experience to help them prepare for a career in their field.

We are home to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, and the Goodman School of Mines. We have a state-of-the-art Vale Living with Lakes international research centre, a remarkable LEEDS-certified building on the shore of Lake Ramsey (the largest of several lakes on our beautiful 700-acre campus). In addition, 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.  In addition, Laurentian is 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 their summers. 

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

We hope you will join the Laurentian community. Read more about us on the Laurentian website.
