MSVU (the Mount) is all about challenging the status quo and making a positive difference, both locally and around the world. This perspective is the foundation of all their programs—and that means students are not just earning a degree, they're earning a degree with a difference. While some universities might stick students in a class with hundreds of other students, at MSVU there are fewer than 24 students in most courses throughout one's degree. Guess that’s why Maclean’s magazine recognizes MSVU’s class sizes as among the smallest in Canada. Those small classes have another bonus: professors will know a student by name, not by number. And they care about student's academic and personal success. Students will take part in group discussions and small team projects that enhance their experience. And it’ll all happen while exploring new ideas and the latest discoveries, thanks to the Mount's professors’ cutting-edge research. So whether coming to university for the first time, transferring from another university or community college, going back to school, or moving to Nova Scotia from another part of the world, the Mount has the (small) size to offer students an experience like no other.
The Mount is located just minutes from downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia and is recognized for its small class sizes and personalized approach to learning. A diverse mix of 4,000 women and men from across Canada and more than 70 countries take advantage of the Mount’s programs and unique sense of community through on-campus classes and distance learning opportunities.
