Humber College

A Statistics Canada study shows professionals with a college degree earn more annually compared to university degree holders.

The data shows average college bachelor’s degree holders earned more than $55,000 two years after graduating, and the average salary was 12 per cent higher than the earnings of university bachelor’s degree holders.  

The study examined the annual earnings and graduate study enrolment rates of college and university bachelor’s degree holders from Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia and focused on graduates between 2010 and 2013, monitoring results two and five years after graduating.

In 2003, the provincial Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities designated Humber as an Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, allowing Humber to develop and offer bachelor degrees. Today, the College offers 28 bachelor degree programs in areas of business, media, health sciences, social sciences and more.

“Humber is a receiving institution for students across the province. As a provincial access institution, Humber offers opportunities for students interested in pathways to degree and graduate certificate completion,” says Laurie Rancourt, senior vice-president, academic.

With a focus on preparing students for the future, Humber programs provide opportunities for work-integrated learning, applied research and connections to industry, ensuring graduates are career ready.
