Mount Allison traces its roots to 1839 when Sackville merchant Charles Frederick Allison proposed the creation of a school of elementary and higher learning.
The Mount Allison Academy, a school for boys, opened in 1843, followed by the Ladies College in 1854.
Our University has five undergraduate degrees - Art, Commerce, Fine Arts, Music and Science - and five master degrees.
It offers more than 40 different programs to choose from to create your unique degree.
We like to call it the small class difference — you'll be able to connect with your professors both inside and outside the classroom. These meaningful interactions will guide you throughout your degree and help you figure out your future.
Our professors bring their research into the classroom, which helps connect you to what is happening right now in the world. You have the opportunity to work directly with them on their research or even co-publish articles before you graduate.

Mount Allison also has resources in place to help students achieve their career and life goals.

Mount Allison’s campus is pretty compact — you can walk end-to-end in less than 10 minutes — but it still doesn’t hurt to have some guidance when you’re trying to find your way around.
When you are just minutes from anywhere you want to be, on or off campus, it makes it easy to dive in and get involved.
Getting involved in (or starting your own) club or society will help you gain important job-related skills like leadership, fund raising, and people management. You will dig deeper into your academic interests outside the classroom and meet lots of inspiring and like-minded people. And you will have lots of fun along the way.
There are over 110 student-run organizations and you will learn about them in your first week on campus. The Clubs and Societies Fair lets you explore what's available, sign up on the spot, or even take the first steps to starting your own club or society.

Small class sizes are awesome, most teachers are great. Tons of opportunities for undergrads, I had a job on campus almost every semester after first year, and did two summers off full time research in my field.
My university experience so far is amazing, its pretty hard of course but thats how you learn! My professors are so kind and willing to help me at any time!
