Graduate Studies at Acadia University
Join us at Acadia University to pursue a graduate degree in an environment built on research, community, and close cooperation between faculty and students. As a small university, we can provide you with an experience that you won't find in a large institution or research university. The small size of our programs means you'll form real bonds with your professors and your fellow students. Your thesis supervisors will be accessible and attentive to your needs.
We encourage our graduate students to explore research, field work, and opportunities in our local communities.

- Master of Arts (1-yr programs) - English, Political Science, Sociology;
- Master of Arts (2-yr program) - Social and Political Thought;
