There is incredible value in a graduate degree, especially in the current climate.

Our graduate students possess an intellectual curiosity that drives their academic explorations. They develop original approaches, ask new questions, and advance and enrich the conversations surrounding some of the most important challenges in today's world.

Graduate degrees are often the key to an accelerated pathway within a career and, sometimes, the start of a new professional direction. Employers value advanced problem solving, critical thinking, and technical skills, all of which are developed in our graduate programs.

It’s important to find the right graduate program – one that aligns with your academic interests, educational background, and ideal career path. We have over 180 graduate programs at the University of Waterloo, each with a unique offering.
