Graduate students are welcome at Acadia. They provide an important dimension to campus life. In a small, primarily undergraduate university, the presence of graduate students enriches the academic context and acts as an additional stimulus to faculty teaching and research. Acadia offers programs at the graduate level in selected areas. The university mission statement clearly states that only "rigorous programs" will be offered in those areas where the university "possesses distinctive scholarly and physical resources." We offer students a chance to study in a context that prepares them well for studies at the Ph.D. level anywhere in the world.
