Higher Education Program

Welcome to Canada's leading hub for graduate studies and research in the field of higher education. 

The Higher Education program specializes in the study of universities, community colleges, and other post-secondary institutions, the relationship between these institutions and the broader society in which they operate, and the nature of what takes place inside these institutions.

In addition, it embraces critical examination, both historical and contemporary, of phenomena related to tertiary-level education, particularly tertiary-level institutions and systems in Canada.

All students in the program obtain a basic understanding of Canadian higher education, and many choose to learn about higher education from an international, comparative perspective.
