Luther students can register in Arts, Science, or Media, Art, and Performance degree programs. Luther students are U of R students and receive a U of R degree.
Luther College welcomes students of all faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds, religions, genders, and sexual orientation.
Luther College at the University of Regina participates in Admission on the Spot events - campus tours, reduced application fees, and the relief of finding out you're accepted to your program right away!
It pays to go to Luther College. Literally. Luther students are eligible for an additional $100,000 in scholarships, in addition to all of the awards available to them as U of R!
Luther College offers year-round campus and residence tours as well as one-on-one enrollment counselling.
Luther students can sign up for the UR Guarantee program - get a guaranteed job after you graduate!
The Luther College Residence hosts multiple social events and programs throughout the year, such as Christmas Dinner, International Night, Mardi Gras, and Karaoke Night.
Luther College opened the first residence on campus in 1971, and is still a “home away from home” to students: meals, laundry, and lifelong friendship included.
Dr. Nicole Hansmeier
Dr. Nicole Hansmeier joined Luther College in July 2018. Nicole is originally from Diestedde. She received her Diploma and Ph.D. in Biology from Bielefeld University, Germany. She then joined the Arizona State University, USA before heading to Osnabrueck, Germany.
Her current research focuses on the system biological understanding of host-pathogen interactions and the use of multi-omics approaches to identify disease pathways or markers indicative of human health. Nicole served as a member of the editorial board of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and currently teaches Introductory Biology for non-biologist (Biol 150) and Medical Microbiology (BIOL 303).
BIOL 150 – Biological Principles
