Graduate Studies

Weyt-k! Welcome to Graduate Studies at TRU.

Thompson Rivers University campuses are on the traditional lands of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc (Kamloops campus) and the T’exelc (Williams Lake campus) within Secwépemc'ulucw, the traditional and unceded territory of the Secwépemc. Our region also extends into the territories of the St’át’imc, Nlaka’pamux, Nuxalk, Tŝilhqot'in and Dakelh peoples. As we share knowledge, teaching, learning and research at TRU, we recognize that this territory has always been a place of teaching, learning and research. We respectfully acknowledge the Secwépemc — the peoples who have lived here for thousands of years, and who today are a nation of 17 bands.

TRU offers one of the most diverse campuses in Canada, we welcome you to increase your intercultural understanding, and to create connections with students and faculty who become lifelong friends and valued mentors.
