    Seneca College
    Established on: 1967

    Seneca College is a public collage in Greater Toronto. Founded in 1967, Seneca College provides student-focused instruction in a warm and supportive atmosphere. 

    Seneca provides over 300 programs and 500 career options to help you achieve your objectives. Seneca can assist you in preparing for a job or furthering your education.

    Seneca's range of credentials and flexible learning options allow you to choose your study path and learn in a way that works for you. College career-focused programs integrate hands-on learning inside and outside the classroom. 

    Students will work on real projects in advanced college labs, acquire practical skills and valuable connections, and graduate job-ready; students will have the specialized skills and experience employers want.

    Seneca delivers a high-quality program at the degree, diploma, certificate, and graduate certificate levels, as well as a variety of transfer opportunities that allow you to use your credits to transfer into another Seneca program or pursue additional education at one of our partner universities.

    Students' educational and personal needs are grown through excellent teaching, real-world research, close collaboration with professors and instructors, and a wide range of recreational and extracurricular activities.

    Seneca College is also offering online classes. Allowing students to take courses online gives education more flexibility and gives them the chance to get respectable credentials.


    Seneca was founded in 1967 as part of a provincial commitment to building an Ontario-wide network of institutions of applied arts and technology that would provide career-oriented diploma and certificate courses and continuing education programs to communities across the province.

    As technology transformed the nature of employment and the provincial economy, the province responded to the growing demand for sophisticated applied learning. General education was a crucial component of higher education, and the breadth of courses is still included in all programs.

    Colleges were granted the right to provide baccalaureate degrees in 2001. Seneca is one of just five institutions in the country that can provide up to 15% of its program activities at the degree level.


    Seneca's ideals begin with a focus on student achievement in all parts of operations, both inside and beyond the classroom. While this may appear simple and is a starting point widely shared throughout the education system at all levels, Seneca confirms that being student-centered and focused on the success of students and graduates is at the heart of Seneca's principles.

    Respect, Excellence, Innovating, Community, and Diversity are essential values at college.
