Mount Royal first opened its doors in September of 1911. Today it is home to more than 12,000 students who take part in credit programming in bachelor’s degrees, diploma programs and certificates. Mount Royal prides itself in providing high quality teaching with small class sizes. Mount Royal is committed to preparing students for life after graduation. This includes offering hands-on learning opportunities through work placements, practicum and co-op education. Mount Royal also offers a strong complement of non-credit programming for learners through the Faculty of Continuing Education and Extension. Continuing Education works in concert with credit programming at Mount Royal University to create programs that complement a wide range of learning paths. Mount Royal is committed to being a part of the community. And as a responsible community member, Mount Royal gives back. The Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning, received gold certification for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
