Master's Programmes



The Ryerson Institute of Technology was established in 1948 in response to the need for skilled tradespeople following the Second World War. Built on the historical site of Ontario’s first teacher training college -- known as the Toronto Normal School. The new institute offered theoretical and practical training in various skilled trades such as architecture, costume design and photography.


We believe that education and experience go hand-in-hand. What our students learn in the classroom is enhanced by real-world knowledge through internships and co-ops, or amplified through zone learning, specialized minors and graduate programs.

Its a good course but was not very handy when it comes to career path.

Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the fact that Ryerson was able to provide a decent clinical placement for graduating students since this is very important in order for students to be prepared to enter the workforce post graduation. In terms of study experience, I would say it's decent. I'm neither satisfied nor dissatisfied because all schools have been impacted by the pandemic. And so it's...

Great course and school but must work hard!
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is a good program but a bit of a workload. You really need to keep up with your time management and the amount of school work. But it is fun taking all the courses!
