The university offers degree programs in arts, applied arts, business administration, education, human ecology, public relations, science and tourism and hospitality management; diploma programs in executive, legal and medical secretarial studies; a certificate program in gerontology and both a certificate and a diploma in business administration and education as well as certificates in gerontology, marketing and proficiency in French. Graduate programs are offered in the fields of education, school psychology and human ecology and women's studies. The university has over 4000 students. Women still represent a large portion of the student population -- over 85%.
