University description (as per official university website)
At Mount Royal you are not just another number. Instead, your professors and fellow students will know your name. You can be yourself.
Being recognized as an individual is a great feeling ó and it enhances your education experience. You will feel comfortable collaborating with your classmates and, if you need help, your professorís door will be open.
Experience pays off
When Mount Royal first opened its doors nearly 100 years ago ó Sept., 1911 ó it welcomed 179 students. Today, some 12,000 credit students take a variety of programs and courses including bachelorís degrees, applied degrees, university transfer courses, diplomas and certificates.
The courses offered have changed over time, but Mount Royal's focus remains the same ó providing you with quality teaching and small class sizes.
Experience has also taught Mount Royal the importance of preparing students well for life after graduation. That means practical and current information, as well as hands-on learning through work placements, practicum and co-op education.
And while students are #1 at Mount Royal, we also know that we are part of a community. And as a responsible community member, Mount Royal gives back.
The newest building on our main campus, The Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning, received gold certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). In 2007, Mount Royal also won the prestigious Calgary Award for Blue Skies Environmental Achievement for our commuting program and incentives.
Mount Royal also takes pride in responding to community needs. To increase Albertansí access to university-level courses, Mount Royal now offers seven bachelorís degrees.
