University Facts and Statistics: University of Winnipeg

The University of Winnipeg offers its undergraduates the unique opportunity to engage in research alongside professors, a privilege that is usually only afforded to graduate students. Through such opportunities, students do not simply receive practical knowledge of their discipline but also have the potential to have their respective names appear on any publications that may result from such research endeavours. The University of Winnipeg began to offer graduate degrees in 1976, and the administration of joint masters programs are done in conjunction with the University of Manitoba. As such, each graduate student in a joint program at the University of Winnipeg can choose, upon written submission by the student prior to his/her expected graduation date, from which of the two schools he/she wants to be granted his/her degree. The University of Winnipeg has had some notable graduates in its history including Canada’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs and current University of Winnipeg president Lloyd Axworthy and former Winnipeg mayor Susan A. Thompson.
