Explore our programs

At Ryerson University we're dedicated to creating a culture of action. We believe that education and experience go hand-in-hand. What our students learn in the classroom is enhanced by real-world knowledge through internships and co-ops, or amplified through zone learning, specialized minors and graduate programs.

Toronto Advantage

The university is located in the heart of Toronto, Canada, the fourth largest city in North America. Here, students can connect with leaders in culture, business, health care or government because opportunity lives at our front door. That's an urban campus.

Zone Learning

Ryerson has pioneered a unique experiential program called zone learning—a great complement to your courses with the opportunity to earn an additional credential on your transcript. You'll work with like-minded students from diverse disciplines and community groups.

Global Connections

Ryerson's campus community includes international students from over 146 countries. The university is rich with diversity of perspectives, cultures and opportunities. In the classroom, that means you'll be surrounded by different opinions and backgrounds to help shape your world view. You'll also find opportunities to engage in international learning experiences.
