Bishop’s offers you a community where profs know your name and care about your success. Where the academic experience is lifted off the page and where blending multiple programs together is not only possible but encouraged. Keep exploring what we have to offer, you might just discover a hidden gem.

What is a liberal education?

A liberal education exposes you to a variety of disciplines and learning strategies and includes in-depth studies in at least one academic area. This style of education will encourage you to ask questions, to consider all angles, to get excited by the pursuit of knowledge, and to be confident in your abilities.

Learning by Doing

Experiential learning is key component of Bishop’s liberal education model. It means hands-on experience and connecting classroom theory to real-life situations, which to our students means learning that prepares them for life.

Undergraduate Programs

Bishop’s is a primarily undergraduate University. We offer over 100 undergraduate bachelor programs in five faculties; School of Education, Williams School of Business, the Humanities, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Social Sciences. Over 50% of our students pursue multiple concentrations during their time at Bishop’s, a major difference you will find here that will shape your professional and personal paths.

Graduate Programs

Bishop’s offers a selection of masters programs designed to give students the opportunity to further their academic and professional development while benefiting from the intimate setting of a small, liberal arts institution. Through theoretical learning and research-based practice, Bishop’s offers graduate students the opportunity to strengthen their leadership and critical reflection skills to prepare them for a successful career.
