Algoma University

Algoma University

Algoma University is the smallest university in Ontario, and prides itself on offering a big educational experience. With 1600 undergraduates, Algoma U promises an education centred on personal attention and one-on-one interactions with faculty in a small classroom setting. With no class bigger than 65 students, students never have to fear getting lost in a crowd or being a number. Students are part of an engaging, inclusive, and diverse community from around the world.

Primarily a teaching university, research at Algoma University is often grounded in the needs of the community we serve. We have three research institutes on campus: The Northern Ontario Research, Development, Ideas, and Knowledge (NORDIK) Institute; the Invasive Species Research Institute (ISRI); and the Health Informatics Institute (HII). Each does groundbreaking research in their respective fields, and each is uniquely connected to our local community.

Algoma University is an undergraduate-only university, where our students have the rare opportunity to take part in research projects, working directly with faculty. Many are published before graduation, and go on to prestigious graduate work at much larger institutions. With approximately 30 degree options in the liberal arts and sciences, Algoma University offers programs in such academic fields as Biology, Psychology, Computer Science, Business Administration, Fine Arts, Community Economic and Social Development, and Fine Arts, with operations in Sault Ste. Marie, Timmins, Brampton, and St. Thomas. As a partner with Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig, Algoma U is committed to respecting Anishinaabe knowledge and culture.
