The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is a French-language university.
UQAM is a dynamic, open, creative university with an international outreach. It is recognized for the originality and quality of its programs, its cutting-edge research, solidly grounded in social concerns, and its innovation in the arts.
UQAM’s central campus and its Pierre-Dansereau Science Complex are located in the heart of two of central Montreal’s liveliest districts: the Quartier Latin [Latin Quarter] and the Quartier des spectacles [Entertainment District]. UQAM is directly accessible from the Berri-UQAM and Place-des-Arts metro stations. Bicycle paths and self-service bike stations also serve all its pavilions.
UQAM offers more than 300 study programs in seven main areas: arts, communications, education, management, political science and law, science, and social sciences. Many of these programs are unique in Quebec, Canada and North America.
UQAM is ranked 1st in Quebec and 8th in Canada in terms of research funding for comprehensive universities (Research Infosource, 2020). The University’s researchers, working in more than a hundred research and creative units, are awarded numerous prizes and distinctions each year.
Innovation has been central to the mission of UQAM, a pioneer in the development of many fields of study not traditionally found in an academic setting. It has unique areas of expertise that have contributed to its institutional identity, notably in public relations, actuarial science, sexology, social law, design and visual arts, feminist studies, and social economy, not to mention its advances in health and in Earth and atmospheric sciences.
