Undergraduate & Graduate
Degree Programs

Bishop’s University is a predominantly residential, mostly undergraduate university. Our primary concern is offering students a quality education in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business and education. The residential aspect of our small size (2,900 full-time students) encourages students to immerse themselves in the complete Bishop’s experience.

Join the more than 9,000 students getting their education at affordable rates, and you’ll get that “big university feel” without that big university price tag.
