University/College hybrids make the school choice easier

December 10, 2007

College/university hybrids such as [email protected] and the University of Guelph-Humber made headlines this year.  Many of these programs graduate students with a university degree and a college diploma as well -- often within 4 years total.  The choice between an "accredited university education" and the practical, personal approach offered by many colleges is often difficult, and so hybrids are attracting students with their offer of both worlds for the price of one.  Guelph-Humber launched in 2002 and saw its first class of 4 year degree+diploma graduates hit the workforce in 2006.
