Academic excellence

Our Education programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), and our Counseling programs are accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

Buffalo: City of opportunity
The Buffalo Niagara region—home to 1.5 million residents—is the state’s second-largest major metropolitan area, exceeded only by New York City. Buffalo is home to leaders in health care, sport, technology, nonprofit, and corporate professions, which provide many hands-on training and employment opportunities for Canisius students.

The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, located within a mile of the Canisius campus, is a center of innovation and economic development with its world-class health care organizations, clinical research institutes, and burgeoning biomedical and tech companies.

Canisius is located in the historic Hamlin Park district, a conveniently located residential neighborhood in north-central Buffalo. Our prime location provides the ideal backdrop for a graduate school experience. We are within walking distance of Delaware Park, the city’s most popular greenspace; a short bike ride or drive to the Elmwood Village, a bustling cultural district; and only a 10-minute train ride to historic Allentown or Buffalo’s stunning redeveloped downtown waterfront.

The campus is within driving distance of exciting international destinations such as Niagara Falls and Toronto, Canada. Canisius is also with-in a day’s drive or an hour-long flight to most major cities in the Northeast.

The graduate student experience at Canisius is built around you—starting with the admission process. You’ll be matched with a personal graduate admission counselor who specializes in your area of interest so you can get the relevant information you need and the one-on-one attention you deserve.
