Average Class Size
King’s is a small and immersive liberal arts college located in vibrant Halifax on Canada’s east coast. Our renowned humanities and journalism programs, as well as our science and music degrees, are all interdisciplinary. With a student population of about 1,000, King’s students enjoy a rich academic experience in a close-knit community of scholars. King’s unique partnership with neighbouring Dalhousie University, one of Canada’s 15 research-intensive universities, gives students many opportunities to combine and customize degrees.
For many of our students, the degree begins with our renowned Foundation Year Program (FYP), a year-long, interdisciplinary exploration of canonical works that have shaped Western thought.
The Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Bachelor of Music degrees are offered in partnership with neighbouring Dalhousie University through our shared Faculty of Arts and Social Science and Faculty of Science.
The Bachelor of Journalism (Hon.) is awarded exclusively by King’s, with electives and major/minor options offered in partnership with Dalhousie.
