York University – Glendon Campus

Excellence in Academics

Rooted in the liberal arts, a Glendon education helps students develop a well‑rounded academic base, an area of academic focus and a suite of the most sought-after transferable skills, including leadership, critical thinking, research and communications. Glendon graduates are further distinguised by language credentials and international perspectives that lead them to careers in journalism, non-governmental organizations, business, diplomacy, teaching and more. 

An International, Bilingual Flair

A Glendon education is set in a vibrantly international and bilingual environment. Students, professors and staff hail from more than 100 countries around the world and value the opportunity to study, live and work in English and French – and other languages. As Southern Ontario’s Centre of Excellence for Bilingual and French‑Language Postsecondary Education, Glendon is committed to equipping all students with skills in French (or English for Francophones) both in and outside of the classroom. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, all students graduate with language certification that can prove a key advantage in the workforce, where more jobs and more money often come to those who can work in both languages.

Glendon – A Natural Jewel

Glendon's peaceful and inspiring campus is set on 85 lush acres of parkland and gardens in the heart of Toronto's mid-town. With a historic Manor at its centre, a close-knit, diverse community of professors, staff and students call it home. 

A Sense of Community

Glendon is great for students interested in a personalized university experience. With a student population of just under 3,000 and an average class size of 28, you will get to know your professors and fellow students well. You will find that in the classroom and across campus, professors and staff are here to support your success. Our small campus gives you opportunities to shine, to connect with students from across the country and around the world, and to get involved in campus life.

Glendon's alumni are leaders in all walks of life, both in Canada and on the international scene. They are at the forefront of their professions and their communities, clearly demonstrating the unique career edge that a Glendon liberal arts education provides. Glendon graduates are further distinguished by language credentials and international perspectives that lead them to careers in journalism, law, diplomacy, non‑governmental organizations, teaching, business and more.
