George Brown College opened its doors in 1968, welcoming just over 2,000 students. In addition to programs in construction, early childhood education, dental services and the culinary arts – subjects they continue to teach – George Brown once offered programs that might not be quite as relevant today, like sign writing or watchmaking. Believe it or not, they even prepared students for careers at sea through a marine engineering program. Since then, the student population has grown to nearly 30,000. People come to George Brown from across the Greater Toronto Area, the country and the world to develop the skills and gain the real-world experience needed to succeed in the workplace. Since 2004, under current President Anne Sado’s leadership, George Brown has more than doubled in size, broadened their international partnerships and increased their commitment to strengthening the cultural, economic and social fabric of Toronto.
Studying in downtown Toronto, students will live, learn and work in the heart of Canada’s biggest, most diverse economy. George Brown offers more than 160 career-focused certificate, diploma, postgraduate and degree programs - one of the widest ranges of full-time college programs in Canada. Most of their programs have a field education component which gives students a valuable opportunity to work and learn with industry partners who may even one day become their future employer.
