The initial programs of study developed by UOF are unique. Rather than be constrained by the traditional divisions of academic disciplines, our programs address the major issues of the 21st century from a transdisciplinary perspective. This promotes the development of the skills and knowledge necessary to respond to these issues, all while capitalizing on the dynamism of the Toronto area and Ontario economy.
UOF's faculty members care deeply about student learning, above all else. They teach as a team in order to combine their strengths and best support individual student achievement. As researchers, they collaborate to meet the needs of communities, institutions and businesses that seek justice, equity and prosperity.
UOF provides cutting-edge learning opportunities across digital platforms, allowing you to fully participate in your courses either on campus or remotely.
The programs are structured as follows:
- Core curriculum (39 credits): Transdisciplinary workshops, integrated projects and a linguistic and intercultural portfolio.
- Thematic (63 credits): Half of which consists of required credits, the other half optional.
- Optional courses (18 credits): Credits selected outside the program.
