Established in 1873, Mount Saint Vincent University (the Mount) has the best of both worlds. A beautiful campus overlooking the Bedford Basin, that is located just minutes from downtown Halifax. A leader in distance education, the Mount offers 10 full undergraduate degree programs and four graduate degree programs available through Distance Learning and Continuing Education.
The Mount offers bachelor’s degrees in arts and science, education and professional studies. It also offers a number of graduate degrees and a variety of certificates and diplomas. Many of the professional studies programs are unique to the Mount and are recognized internationally. With practicum and cooperative study opportunities, students gain hands-on experience they can apply in the workforce. And with small class sizes, students at the Mount will know their classmates and professors by name.
The Mount ranks among the top three undergraduate universities in Canada for Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council grants. The university has more than doubled the number of undergraduate students holding research assistantships over the last three years, while graduate research assistantships have also increased. These unique opportunities can be life changing for students, opening up professional possibilities and new aspirations.
A diverse mix of more than 4,000 women and men from across Canada and from more than 60 countries take advantage of the Mount’s programs and unique sense of community through on-campus classes or at a distance.
