How you learn here is as important as what you learn—and a big part of what allows you to excel.

94% of King’s students report being either satisfied or extremely satisfied with the overall quality of their education (CUSC 2018).

The University of King’s College is a small and extraordinarily lively liberal arts university located in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Canada’s east coast. We are best known for our humanities programs, journalism programs, science and music degrees, which all take an interdisciplinary approach to education. With under 1,000 students on campus, you will be educated in an academic community where professors and peers will both challenge and support you.
