One of the most common questions we answer from students and parents at this time of year.
Answer: More in 4 years!
“UofGH truly taught me what was necessary to be a leader in the workplace, communicate with coworkers, grow my network and how to continually develop my career.” –Aaron R., alumnus
The University of Guelph-Humber (UofGH) was founded, on the principle of integrating experiential learning opportunities into the traditional academic curriculum, by The University of Guelph and Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning.
Because we are a collaboration between a university and a college, our graduates leave with an honours degree and a diploma in their field, in four years, from one location. You take university courses that give you academic knowledge and practical experience. In the competitive world of career building, you need the tools that’ll put you in your most coveted job roles and open up possibilities. An honours degree and a diploma immediately put you ahead of the crowd.
“My placement expanded my opportunities to work with children and exposed me to a great career I had never considered—occupational therapy!” –Lyssa K., alumna
What programs do you offer?
As a small university of 4,900 students, we offer seven distinct programs— Business, Early Childhood Studies, Family and Community Social Services, Justice Studies, Kinesiology, Media Studies and Psychology. Your classes will be focused on your program of interest with very few electives.
“I discovered the world of broadcast journalism at UofGH. I learned what hard work and loyalty to a dream could accomplish, and was prepared for a life in the ever-evolving world of television.” –Natalie Q., alumna
How do I get hands-on experience?
Each program has built-in workplace experience (100 to 850+ hours) and a combination of labs or other practical in-class hands-on learning. Examples include business event planning, early childhood studies curriculum development, social service counselling labs, justice studies mock crime scene investigations, kinesiology athletic taping and bandaging, and psychology labs.
“I love UofGH for experiential learning. I was able to apply the concepts, theories and techniques I learned in class through field placements, lab sessions and assignments.” –Lindsay V., alumna
Use the team you have at UofGH to your advantage—Academic Advisors, Field Placement Coordinators, Career Services Coordinators and Alumni Mentors—and use our networking events, career fairs and workshops to get connected to people and resources in your field.
“A key aspect is being able to speak to professors who are professionals in your industry. This gives you a unique perspective on academic coursework, a realistic outlook on potential careers and an abundance of networking opportunities.” –Anthony N., alumnus
Is UofGH the right choice for me?
Yes, if you like small classes and the support of a close-knit community.
You’ll be one of approximately 65 to 250 students in the first year of your program. This means small classes, getting to know your classmates and professors, and easy access to academic support, career guidance, financial advice and more. When we say, we’ll know you on campus—we mean it.
“Small classes are enriching. I engaged with professors during and after class. This individualized attention has raised my learning to a higher level.” –Ovais A., alumnus
Where will I study?
Your classes are held at the University of Guelph-Humber on Humber’s North Campus in northwest Toronto. Your professors will be from the University of Guelph and Humber. Being in Toronto makes it easy for you to
connect to employers.
How do I decide?
Come for a visit. Visiting campus can be the deciding factor. Does it feel right for you? Take a tour, talk to other UofGH students, attend our Fall Information Day (November 10) or a Program Preview Day in March.
