We offer high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs including several that are unique in Western Canada, for example, a Bachelor of Arts in Human Rights, and a Master’s degree in Development Practice with a focus on Indigenous Development. Our graduates value their educational experience, and UWinnipeg consistently ranks highly in national surveys for overall reputation, small class sizes, academic excellence and commitment to the environment.
