Overview:

  • The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is a comprehensive public university based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is a French language university and is the largest constituent element of the Université du Québec (UQ), a public university system.
  • UQAM was founded on April 9, 1969 by the government of Quebec, through the merger of the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, a fine arts school; the Collège Sainte-Marie, a classical college; and a number of smaller schools.
  • Although part of the UQ network, UQAM possesses a relative independence which allows it to print its own diplomas and choose its rector.
  • In 2011, UQAM had a student population of 41,325 in six faculties (Arts, Education, Communication, Political Science and Law, Science and Social science) and one school (Management).
  • It offers Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees. It is one of Montreal's two French-language universities, along with the Université de Montréal, and only 1% of its student population is Anglophone.
