Relevant, Innovative, High-Quality Programming

Programming icon

Continuous and steadfast focus on student success drives our actions. A spirit of continuous improvement, supported by well-established program reviews, ensures the high quality of Langara’s academic and continuing studies programs. Programs provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to our economy and community, and students can access the courses they need for timely completion of their studies. Indigenous ways of knowing are woven into our programs. Our new Academic Plan provides direction for academic innovation.
