Welcome to Niagara College and thank you for choosing NC.

What should I study?  How can I figure out what career is right for me?  What kind of job will I get?  If you find yourself asking these questions then the School of Academic and Liberal Studies can help you find the answers you need to plan your path forward.  We offer a broad range of courses and programs that allow you to enhance your academic skills and discover your strengths and interests.

Our programs offer you the flexibility to experience courses from a variety of fields of study as you explore your pathway in life.  In our programs you’ll meet faculty and students who have diverse interests and experiences.  In your classes you will participate in engaging and interactive activities that will help you gain new perspectives and meet other students.

Outside the classroom, I encourage you to get involved in our NC community.  The Centre for Student Engagement and Leadership provides a broad range of activities from volunteering to student government.  There are always a range of activities to choose from and you’ll meet students from over 50 different countries in our globally connected college!

The faculty and staff in the School of Academic and Liberal Studies care about your success.  We are here to help you find the path that’s right for you.  Our Academic Advisors can help you select courses and faculty will give you feedback that will help you be successful in your studies.  With a range of student services such as peer tutoring and our health and wellness centre you’ll find the supports you need as you move through your programming here at NC.

Most of all, enjoy your time here at college.  Study hard, but take time to get involved, make new friends, and dream big.  Your time at college is an opportunity to fulfill your dreams and make memories that will last a lifetime!

Have a great semester.  I look forward to meeting you!
