Join us at Acadia University for a hands-on research environment that is among the best of its class in Canada. Our students and faculty explore local and global issues in an increasingly interdisciplinary way.

We offer a large number of undergraduate Honours programs—most of which are thesis-based—and 13 graduate programs.


Our students receive one-on-one research mentoring by highly skilled faculty members who are actively engaged in research. Many of our undergraduate and graduate students are sought out as researchers by larger comprehensive universities, a clear testament to the quality of the experience they have received at Acadia.


Acadia's faculty researchers collaborate with students, entrepreneurs, industries, and governments. We foster a participatory and interdisciplinary environment. Our faculty includes three Canada Research Chairs and leaders of a variety of research centres and institutes.
