About Us

PRIZMA is a part of McGill’s School of Continuing Studies. We partner with the community to offer quality, multi-disciplinary courses to adult learners who are curious and want to keep learning. We offer dynamic courses  which invite curiosity, as well as providing solid knowledge on the topic. Our courses offer a wide spectrum of learning, including music, art, science, human development, history, and architecture.

Our partners include cultural, social, educational, and public institutions, such as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, L’Institut du Nouveau Monde, McCord Museum, Société des arts technologiques, and Autorité des marchés financiers.

PRIZMA courses and events offer quality information made accessible by great facilitators who understand adult learning and how to engage participants. Our courses are designed to provide students with a sense of wonder and a deeper understanding of the subject matter though learning experiences. Our courses may include special guests, access to unusual locations and a hands on approach that provides students with an extraordinary learning experience.

We are proud to offer learning events in both English and French.
