Algoma University

Introduction

Algoma University is the smallest university in Ontario. Now let us tell you what that means for you.


You’ll hear a lot of schools talk about their small class sizes, even going so far as to give average class sizes in the 20’s. What you won’t hear is any other university in Ontario guarantee you that you will never be in a class with more than 65 students. Yes, even in your first year.


We are a small, undergraduate institution in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Our beautiful campus is situated at the heart of the Great Lakes, across the St. Mary’s River from the USA, at the geographic centre of North America. Established in 1964 and granted our charter in 2008, Algoma University has been offering undergraduate studies to students for almost 50 years.

Algoma is a small university where you’ll get a big education. With over 30 academic programs in a diverse range of fields, you can choose to be broad-based, or to specialize, depending on where your ambitions lie. You will have access to your professors that simply isn’t possible at the undergraduate level anywhere else in the province. And, as our students will tell you, the relationships you develop with faculty will help you to find a job, gain access to post-graduate programs, or whatever else you decide to do beyond your time here.


We are growing, but not too big, and not too fast. We are committed to maintaining our competitive advantage, and that is our personal attention to you, and our commitment to your success. We think those are the cornerstones of a positive university experience.
