University description (as per official university website)
What can I study?
The University of Regina offers a broad range of program options in our eight undergraduate faculties, including pre-professional programs, and exciting opportunities in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.
It is the only university on the prairies offering degrees in journalism, film and video production, and health studies, and one of only a few in Canada offering direct entry into Education.
Other one-of-a-kind programs include police studies and justice studies and arts education.

Of special interest to many students is the Co-operative Education program, which gives students in many undergraduate programs an opportunity to intersperse work terms with academic studies. Co-op students get paid, which helps finance their university education, and provides invaluable experience.

The right choice
Students tell us the University of Regina is "just the right size". Big enough for world-class faculty and exciting research. Small enough that students at all levels find their professors approachable and willing to help. Big enough to attract students from more than 90 countries. Small enough that all students can easily get involved and become part of our campus community.
The right size for you!
The University of Regina has a broad range of programs to offer undergraduate students and exciting opportunities for graduate students.
Students also have the choice of studying in one of three federated colleges that offer U of R programs: Campion College, Luther College and First Nations University of Canada, the only university-level institution in North America run by First Nations peoples.
All of our students enjoy state-of-the-art facilities and excellent services. Our campus is located in a beautiful park setting in the middle of the city of Regina. A medium-sized prairie city and the capital of the province of Saskatchewan, Regina is known for its friendly people, opportunities to participate in community life and spectacular sunsets.
The U of R is open to new ideas and different ways of doing things, and has a reputation for distinctive, innovative programs.
Interdisciplinary study and research is encouraged, giving both faculty and students exciting opportunities to work together on projects that are of common interest but cross disciplines. Adaptation to climate change and innovative uses of the Wii are just two of many examples.
The University also fosters close connections with Regina and its surrounding community, giving students opportunities to do research in real-life settings, as well as gain work experience through co-op placements and internships.
