About

History

Ryerson University’s history is rooted in innovative, career-driven education with the goal of addressing contemporary societal needs. Named after Ontario’s first Superintendent of Education and leading public school advocate, Egerton Ryerson, it began as a postsecondary institute designed to combine technical education with academic theory for the first time.

Education

Creative, connected and entrepreneurial—graduate education at Ryerson puts you at the core of what’s next. The  graduate programs are distinctive and offer an outstanding student-centred experience. 

Research

Ryerson’s collaborative and multidisciplinary research cuts across 8 key themes that represent Ryerson’s strategic strengths and reflect the diverse scholarly, research and creative (SRC) activity that is taking place across the university.

Career

How do university students plan for careers today? The first step is recognizing that employment is no longer about graduates getting one job and staying there until retirement - there’s far more opportunity today.

Instead, graduates today can expect to take on multiple roles in diverse industries - on average 15 jobs across three sectors over the course of your career. Instead of a ‘job for life’, it’s about building your ‘career for life’.
