About Mount Saint Vincent University
What makes us a small wonder?
Small classes. Small campus. Small community. Big opportunity.
A diverse mix of 4,000 students from across Canada and more than 50 countries take advantage of the Mount's programs and unique sense of community. Located minutes from downtown Halifax, the Mount's campus offers the benefits of a country-like setting, but with proximity to city amenities.
The Mount's class sizes make for a personalized learning experience of the highest quality. The Mount is committed to fostering socially responsible, global citizens. We want you to aim high and achieve personal goals, and also to take what you learn and make a difference in the world.
We have flexible learning options to suit your schedule. We have many undergraduate and graduate degree programs available through distance learning. Our faculty and research centres provide unique learning opportunities for students while creating new knowledge and advancements in food security, healthy aging, literacy, childhood development and more. The Mount’s undergraduate degrees in Public Relations and Child and Youth Study are the only programs of their kind in Atlantic Canada.
