Ryerson University

Ryerson University is on a path to become Canada’s leading comprehensive innovation university. An urban institution in the heart of Toronto, Ryerson is committed to serve societal needs and engage its diverse community. A combination of theory and professional learning provides graduate and undergraduate education that is distinct from other universities. That difference is reflected in the program mix and the reinforcement of classroom lectures with formal contact with business and industry, laboratory work, field trips and work experience in the professional community. Innovation and entrepreneurship are an important focus, supported by Ryerson’s unique zone learning model. The model enables students to gain first-hand, practical experience in creating an initiative or venture with potential for social or economic impact from the ground up.

Ryerson offers a vast selection of undergraduate, master’s and PhD programs in six faculties – Arts; Communication and Design; Community Services; Engineering and Architectural Science; Science; and the Ted Rogers School of Management, as well as in the Yeates School of Graduate Studies. In 2020, Ryerson’s Law School  welcomed its first cohort of students. The G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education is Canada’s largest, with 70,000 registrations annually.
