Paving the way

Heather WebsterHeather Webster looked at a number of universities during her last year of high school, but only Mount Allison offered exactly what she wanted: the ability to major in psychology while continuing her music studies. Four years later she graduated from Mount A with a psychology degree.

Now she says the University gave her everything she'd hope for: the freedom to explore her interests and then map out her next course of action – a combined Juris Doctor and Master of Health Administration degree. Ultimately, her goal is to help improve Canada's healthcare.

On the student experience:

"A liberal arts education provides you with reading, writing, research, critical thinking, and teamwork skills, as well as a larger understanding of society."

"I made a really meaningful connection with people all over the university community – something you might not be able to do at a larger university. I've learned a great deal outside of the classroom from those individuals. A smaller university also allows you to take initiative and work on projects you're interested in, and I think that that's really unique and special as well."
