Georgian emphasize practical, hands-on learning—education through experience is the college’s guiding principle.

Georgian offers a comprehensive range of more than 125 degree, certificate, diploma, combined degree-diploma, apprenticeship, academic upgrading and university transfer programs. Its campuses are located in picturesque communities throughout central Ontario: Barrie, Collingwood, Midland, Bracebridge, Orangeville, Orillia and Owen Sound. All are just a short drive to Toronto. Student residences are available at three campuses.

Georgian recently introduced a number of new programs, including combined degree-diploma programs in computer science and applied health science; students in these programs graduate with both a diploma and a degree in just four years. A unique offering at Georgian is the diploma in Anishinaabemowin language, focused on training students to provide language programs in Indigenous communities and organizations.

The brand-new Peter B. Moore Advanced Technology Centre at the college’s Barrie campus supports hands-on learning in programs such as electrical engineering and environmental sustainability.
