Inter-University Doctoral Program Available in NS

Due to the collaboration and innovation of three Nova Scotian Universities, students are now able to study for their PhD in Educational Studies for the first time in Nova Scotia. Lifelong learning is offered as one of six major theme areas of this PhD program. The Inter-University Doctoral Program in Educational Studies, which is the only one of its kind in the region, is a shared venture between Acadia University (Acadia), Mount Saint Vincent University (the Mount), and Saint Francis Xavier University (StFX).

This will be the inaugural doctoral degree offering for all three universities and builds on an already strong reputation of their graduate study offerings. The inter-university program will allow students to stay in the region to further their education and it will attract students to Nova Scotia. In addition, it will lead to an advanced research base in educational studies in the province and beyond – research that could very well affect curricula development and public policy on the education system.
