Research and creative activities are a cornerstone of the Mount Allison experience — both for faculty and students.

Our faculty are involved in cutting edge research in many different fields. In particular, Mount Allison research focuses on questions of quality of life and human endeavour, including:

  • aquatic sciences
  • citizenship, culture, and civil society
  • climate change
  • creative practice and performance
  • health and aging
  • material science
  • scholarship of teaching and learning
  • visual and material culture

Our students often work right alongside them as research assistants, benefiting from their experience and expertise. Or, supported by faculty, they choose to pursue their own interests through independent research projects.
