What's happening at Acadia

Dear students, faculty, and staff,

As we head into 2021, we can all be proud of getting to this day - starting our winter term! Enjoy the opportunities to grow that are ahead, both the successes and the "failures," because this semester, we are all learning and growing in new ways.

In the fall of 2020 Acadia University announced the launch of a new Master of Science in Environmental Science Program. This is an exciting development for the university, now students engaged in interdisciplinary environmental science research will have the option to choose a degree program that accurately reflects their work.

Student Lauren Muzak Ruff will be the first graduate of the new program, she successfully defended her thesis on December 16, 2020. Lauren is supervised by Dr. Ian Spooner, Research Director at the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre and Dr. Mark Mallory, Canada Research Chair and biology professor at Acadia University.
