Teachers & Guidance Counsellors
Our graduates are in high demand for jobs in Canada and internationally due to their strong communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
In response to the worldwide call for bilingual science graduates, we are proud to offer BSc programs in Psychology and Biology, which pairs our language focused education with a science curriculum.
Our international Bachelor of Arts (iBA) and international Bachelor of Science (iBSc) programs add a unique global dimension to our quality programs.
Glendon students develop key career skills to prepare them for the workforce, whether through volunteer and work opportunities on campus, workshops or by joining one of over 35 student-run clubs and organizations. Other programs include:
- Top Scholars – recognition of our best students with perks and research apprenticeships
- G21 – an inquiry based incubator Inspired by the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for global partnerships
- GENIAL – a key player in the development and promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation
- Glendon Digital Media Lab – access to professional media hardware and software and hands-on experience in digital production
- Student Research – a dynamic community of innovative research
Whether your student doesn’t speak any French or is already bilingual, they are welcome in our supportive learning environment. A student can choose between our flexible language option or the bilingual degree path. There are more languages to explore like Spanish and Anishinaabemowin as well. A Glendon education provides the opportunity to study, live and work in a vibrantly international environment with students, professors and staff hailing from over 100 different countries.
Since the beginning, we have believed that small classes and a strong sense of community are key factors to student success. True to this vision, today our average class size is of 26 students, which allows for a better proximity with professors.
Set on the historic estate of the Wood family, our campus is a lush parkland in the heart of Toronto — an inspiring setting for university studies and a great backdrop for relaxing outside of class. We are ideally situated in a safe gated community, only moments from the subway or a short drive to downtown.
