Memorial University of Newfoundland
(MUN), is a university based in St. John's, with four satellite campuses. Memorial University offers certificate, diploma, undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate programmes, as well as online courses and degrees. Memorial's five campuses include St. John's, Corner Brook, and Harlow, Essex, United Kingdom. Memorial is one of the largest universities in Atlantic Canada, and Newfoundland and Labrador's only university. There are a reported 1,400 faculty and 3,800 staff, supporting 18,000 students from nearly 100 countries.
Memorial has seven faculties (Arts, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Medicine, Nursing, and Science) and six Schools (Graduate Studies, Music, Pharmacy, Human Kinetics, Recreation, and Social Work). These offer a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes. A large part of Memorial's research and development is related to oceans, much of which overlaps with teaching and learning initiatives, and public engagement opportunities.
Accreditation & Statistics
In October 2019, Maclean's ranked Memorial University seventh out of 15 Canadian universities in its comprehensive university category. Memorial University is accredited by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC).
St. John's is the capital and largest city of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula on the large Canadian island Newfoundland. The city spans 446.04 square kilometres (172.22 sq mi) and is North America's easternmost city, excluding Greenland. Its name has been attributed to the Nativity of John the Baptist, when John Cabot was believed to have sailed into the harbour in 1497 and to a Basque fishing town with the same name. Existing on maps as early as 1519, it is one of the oldest cities in North America. With a metropolitan population of approximately 219,207, the St. John's Metropolitan Area is Canada's 20th largest metropolitan area and the second largest city in Atlantic Canada, after Halifax.
St. John's economy is connected to both its role as the provincial capital of Newfoundland and Labrador and to the ocean. The civil service which is supported by the federal, provincial and municipal governments has been the key to the expansion of the city's labour force and to the stability of its economy, which supports a sizable retail, service and business sector. With the collapse of the fishing industry in Newfoundland and Labrador in the 1990s, the role of the ocean is now tied to what lies beneath it – oil and gas – as opposed to what swims in or travels across it. The city is the centre of the oil and gas industry in Eastern Canada and is one of 19 World Energy Cities. ExxonMobil Canada is headquartered in St. John's and companies such as Chevron, Husky Energy, Suncor Energy and Statoil have major regional operations in the city.
