Canadian Excellence

Academic Programs

Laurier has seven academic faculties - Arts, Science, Business & Economics, Music, Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies, Social Work, and Education - and campuses in Waterloo, Brantford, Kitchener and Toronto, Ontario.

If you are a current high school student, you will want to pursue an undergraduate-level degree. The following undergraduate programs are offered at our Waterloo and Brantford Campus.

If you already have a bachelor's-level degree, you may want to pursue a
post-graduate degree (Master's or Doctoral) through our Graduate Faculty.

Faculty of Arts

Arts is our largest faculty with over 3000 program combinations to choose from! Students are drawn to Laurier Arts for its balance of traditional programs such as English and Political Science and its new interdisciplinary programs which include Communication Studies and Medieval Studies. First year students can benefit from our "exploratory first year", which allows you to discover a variety of courses and choose your major at the end of your first year.


Faculty of Music

?Laurier's Faculty of Music offers a dynamic undergraduate music program with specializations in Performance, Contemporary Music, Music Education, Theory and Music History. It is a performance based program so you must audition in order to apply. With enrolment restricted to about 300 students, our program is small enough to give students ready access to their professors but large enough to form a full orchestra, four choirs and ensembles in chamber music, opera, wind, jazz and improvisation. Laurier also has a one of a kind Music Therapy program at both the undergraduate and graduate level.


Faculty of Science

Science is one of Laurier's most entrepreneurial faculties. With state-of-the-art facilities and cutting edge programs that emphasize lab work and research our students gain the practical experience necessary to succeed in and outside of the classroom. Students work on research papers and projects, field experiments, placements with community agencies and our students have the opportunity to work alongside their professors on current research within their field of study.


School of Business and Economics

One of Canada's leading and largest business schools, the Laurier School of Business & Economics is known for its innovative programs and commitment to teaching excellence. Our business programs use case discussions, simulation games, visits by business executives and student projects to provide a real world experience where students can experiment and apply theoretical learning. Our diverse economics programs allow students to combine the study of economics with accounting, financial management and business administration. Laurier SBE is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business which only 5% of schools have worldwide.


Brantford Campus

A leader in innovative liberal arts and professional programs, Laurier Brantford offers unique programs that are designed to promote a broader understanding of current issues and prepare students for a constantly evolving world. The campus now boasts over 2,500 students in more than 23 buildings in downtown Brantford. Because the campus is integrated in to the heart of the city, students have the unique opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom directly to the community, by getting involved with local organizations. Student engagement is key on campus, withmany clubs committed to making a difference in the world, including: Journalists for Human Rights (JHR), World University Service Canada (WUSC), and Project Empathy, which was established by Laurier Brantford students to raise awareness of the AIDS pandemic.
