The McMaster Discovery Program

Discovery Program

The McMaster Discovery Program is a free, university-level, non-credit course offered to Hamilton residents who experience barriers to post-secondary education. The program aims to create opportunities for local residents to take part in a process of learning and discovery in the liberal arts tradition, to inspire a passion for lifelong learning, and to foster engagement and mutual learning between McMaster University and the communities it aspires to serve. The program will be entering its eleventh year in September 2021.
