The Head of Trent University Durham

Welcome to Trent University Durham. This is a unique campus where you will have direct access to dynamic faculty engaged in teaching and research in eleven full degree programs (Anthropology, Business, Child and Youth Studies, Communications and Critical Thinking, English, History, Media Studies, Philosophy, Psychology, Social Work and  Sociology). There are also many other courses offered at Trent Durham including first and second year courses in programs such as Biology, Environmental Studies, Cultural Studies, Computing, French, Indigenous Studies, International Development, and Gender & Women’s Studies.

Trent University Durham provides students with the kind of critical thinking and communications learning that an education, grounded in the social sciences and humanities, makes possible.  That particular kind of undergraduate education will prepare you to be an active participant in an ever changing work environment.

Our goal is to provide students with critical thinking skills, superior comprehension skills, and a deep sense of community in a “small university” setting. There are numerous opportunities for community interactions including events such as “Black History Month” and local archeological digs. With a plan to grow to 1,500 students over the next few years we will rely on strong collaboration with  Durham College and UOIT, both of which are located in Oshawa. 

A large percentage of Trent University Durham students live in the surrounding areas (Whitby, Oshawa, and Clarington) and commute daily to get a first class undergraduate education while choosing to remain at home. 

You will always find a warm welcome at Trent University Durham from faculty and staff whether you are a student, parent or visitor.

Head, Trent University Durham
