Welcome to the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science!
Dr. Robert Raeside - Interim Dean of Pure and Applied Science
Science is a process of understanding the universe driven by curiosity and need. At Acadia, you will work closely with your professors and in the community using evidence to evaluate, build, and transform knowledge. We offer unique and exciting opportunities to conduct groundbreaking discovery and applied research in our labs, field sites and with our partners. Acadia has thriving and vibrant Co-op education opportunities from your second year where you can work in university or industry labs, on the farm, in the vineyard, or in businesses. Understanding the complex world around us requires us to have a firm grounding in science as well as an appreciation of the arts and humanities. The personal, liberal arts education at Acadia will give you these diverse perspectives to advance scientific discovery. It is a wonderful place to be curious!
