Dalhousie University blends the finest academic traditions with innovative thinking and outstanding educational opportunities. Located in one of North America’s most dynamic communities, Dalhousie is a warm and welcoming university that attracts students from around the globe.
Dalhousie has been at the heart of Halifax — a lively coastal city of 370,000 people — for almost 200 years. Its historic, tree-lined campus combines the welcoming atmosphere of Canada’s east coast with the international prestige of a big-name school. With 11 faculties and more than 3,600 courses in 180 areas of study, the university offers its 16,000 students a wealth of choice and flexible and innovative degree programs, including the new Environment, Sustainability and Society program that is the first of its kind in Canada.
Dalhousie encourages student learning through exchange programs, fieldwork, community service and cooperative education. Its collaborative learning environment encourages students to interact with one another and with faculty experts to share ideas and offer new perspectives. Dalhousie is the smallest of Canada’s research-intensive universities, combining the culture of a small undergraduate college with the opportunities of a larger research institution.
This collaborative spirit also extends off campus. Dalhousie conducts research in partnership with teaching hospitals, professional organizations, businesses, non-profit agencies and other universities. As Atlantic Canada’s leading research university, Dalhousie attracts more than $128 million in research grants and awards annually, allowing the university to conduct a wide variety of research projects, including the groundbreaking Ocean Tracking Network project.
The University of King’s College, situated adjacent to the Dalhousie campus, is an affiliated institution, and its students in arts and science receive Dalhousie degrees in the name of both institutions. Degrees in agriculture, awarded to students of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, are awarded by Dalhousie in cooperation with the college.
