The City University Difference

City University of Seattle in Canada is a not-for-profit, accredited institution that has offered post-secondary academic programs in Canada since 1984. Our Canadian-made programs have focused on preparing working adults to meet the complex and diverse challenges faced within the areas of education, human services and management including our current degree offerings: Master of Education (School Counselling or Leadership), Master of Counseling and Bachelor of Arts in Management.

Fully Canadian based, each of our programs have been designed by Canadian faculty to meet the needs of the local communities we serve. At CityU, our core faculty are practitioner-scholars who bring the lived experience of professional practice supported by the latest thinking and research into the classroom. Our small class sizes and experienced faculty provide a unique student learning environment with real case studies and hands-on practical experiences which ensure that our graduates are ready to succeed in their chosen career paths. Supervised internships further the application of theory to professional practice in both the Master of Counselling and Master of Education programs.

Our students study in cohorts, supported by experienced advisors and senior faculty, to build a strong sense of community, an environment of mutual support and to create networking opportunities. Designed for working adults, our programs are offered in a variety of formats and locations to allow students to plan their studies around work, family and life.

Offering degrees in both British Columbia and Alberta, CityU has approximately 500 students, 75 faculty and staff and more than 2,000 alumni in Canada.
