Often referred to as the academic resort of Ontario, Laurentian University is nestled into a pristine 765-acre peninsula in Sudbury– less than four hours north of Toronto. Laurentian also has a rapidly expanding campus located in Barrie, Ontario.
Laurentian currently offers over 175 undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs in diverse fields in both official languages. The degree structures are flexible so you can customize your major and minor studies and create a degree that’s unique to your strengths and interests.
We offer one of the best faculty-student ratios you’ll find anywhere, and programs you won’t find anywhere else – like the only accredited Forensic Science program outside the U.S., and a Bachelor of Commerce in Sports Administration, among others.
Strong on research, Laurentian University has been ranked number one in the country for sponsored research income among primarily undergraduate universities by Research Infosource for two consecutive years. We have 14 distinct Centres of Research in a range of disciplines, including the world-famous underground Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNOLAB) and the state-of-the-art Vale Living With Lakes international research centre, a remarkable LEEDS-certified building on the shore of Lake Ramsey.
The Sudbury Campus is home to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (East Campus) and to a brand-new International School of Mines. Also on track is the Laurentian School of Architecture, preparing to admit its first class in September 2013. It will be the first new school of architecture in Canada in more than 40 years.
Laurentian University is a bilingual institution with a solid commitment to indigenous education and a rapidly growing cohort of international students.
