Canadian Excellence

Introduction

Laurier Brantford provides students with an educational alternative to standard university programming. Interdisciplinary liberal arts are combined with applied professional and occupational programs to provide a strong foundation for both employment and further studies.

Our unique core curriculum in contemporary studies promotes a broader understanding of contemporary issues and more broadly applicable cultural literacy, creativity, critical thinking and communication skills. All full-time students on the Brantford Campus are required to complete a minimum of 5.0 credits in contemporary studies (4.0 of these at the senior level).

Discipline-based honours programs include Criminology, Health Administration, Health Studies, Human Rights & Human Diversity, Journalism, Law & Society and Leadership; combination honours degrees in English, History and Psychology; a concurrent education program offered jointly with Nipissing University; options in Administration, Children's Education and Development, Environment & Society, Indigenous Studies, International Development, Media Studies and Public Relations and minors in a selection of arts programs.

Brantford students may also pursue programs which combine their studies with college programs available at Conestoga College. (Refer to Admission to Laurier Brantford.)
