    At Acadia, we teach you to question. Our faculty members will challenge you to think critically. To debate and engage. And to enjoy intellectually challenging academic programs. Our small classes provide a personalized learning atmosphere that fosters student success.

    Acadia is nationally and internationally recognized as a centre of research excellence. Our faculty's dual commitment to instill a love of learning and to generate new knowledge provides our students with unique partnerships with faculty, both to do research and to communicate and connect that research to the community.
