UNIVERSITY OF KING'S COLLEGE

The University of King’s College, Canada’s oldest chartered university, is a tightly-knit and lively academic community in coastal Halifax, NS. It offers degrees in arts, science, music and journalism, and is renowned for its humanities and journalism offerings.

Most King’s students begin their degrees in the Foundation Year Programme (FYP), an expansive, interdisciplinary examination of Western thought from ancient to contemporary times. The curriculum is designed to expose students to fundamental works — in philosophy, history, literature, drama, and the natural and social sciences — that continue to shape the world today. The intensive and immersive structure of the program equips students with the necessary critical thinking and communication skills needed to excel in their academic work.
