New Program Option - Legal Studies

Starting in September 2010, student registered in Honours programs in Arts, Science and Business can add the Legal Studies Option to their degree. The Legal Studies Option is designed to give students an opportunity to study legal topics, theories, and methods that are at the intersection of law, politics, business, history, philosophy, gender, justice, human rights and ethics.  Students will take courses from faculty members from a wide variety of academic disciplines.  The Legal Studies Option is ideal for undergraduate students interested in pursuing law school and other legal-related careers.

New ESL Program

The Laurier English and Academic Foundation (LEAF) program will admit its first class of students in September 2010. This program is geared towards students who are academically qualified for admission, but do not meet Laurier's English proficiency requirements. Students will receive a conditional offer to Laurier and will not be required to present TOEFL or IELTS scores upon successful completion of the program. The program will run in 10-week cycles from Laurier's Brantford campus.

New Joint Programs with Conestoga College

Laurier and Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning are combining their strengths in theoretical and applied learning to create two joint programs, one in computer science and the other in biochemistry/biotechnology. The first program combines Conestoga’s software engineering technology diploma with Laurier’s Honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) in computer science. The second combines Laurier’s Honours BSc in biochemistry and biotechnology with Conestoga’s biotechnology technician diploma. Both programs begin in September 2010 and are designed to enhance the educational experience of students and increase their job opportunities.
