Nova Scotia Agricultural College
Truro, Canada


University description (as per official university website)


Founded in 1905, The Nova Scotia Agricultural College has come of age and stands at the threshold of a new era in agricultural education, training and research. As a university, the NSAC provides agricultural based Technical, Technology, Bachelor and Masters level programs in its capacity as the Atlantic institution with the mandate for post-secondary education in agriculture. Situated on 265 hectares of fertile intervale along the Salmon River in Bible Hill, the NSAC's facilities have expanded rapidly in recent years. Improvements to the farm complex and research facilities now make it one of the most modern, best equipped universities in the Atlantic region.

The story of the NSAC is interwoven with the history and development of the agriculture industry of Nova Scotia and the Atlantic Provinces. The institution also figures prominently in the history of the Truro and Bible Hill area. A summary of the the History of the NSAC based on historical research conducted by Dale Ells, Dean Emeritus is presented. For a more complete history of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, one is advised to read Shaped Through Service, a 279 page illustrated history of NSAC. Copies are available at the NSAC Bookstore or from the author.
The Prospectus of the College of Agriculture, Truro, Nova Scotia 1905-1906 by Dale Ells is a document created for the 95th Anniversary of NSAC. (PDF format) to highlight the early history of the institution.

The complete biographies of all the Principals and Presidents of the NSAC is also on line.

NSAC is a small, vibrant university where students participate and learn applied life sciences and related fields.

With 800 students, we have one of the lowest student-professor ratios around—yet we rank near the top of all Canadian Universities in research intensity. We offer an internationally respected education in agriculture and the life sciences, including diploma programs, undergraduate and post-graduate degrees—and we manage to do it with one of the lowest tuition fees in the province.

NSAC is located just outside the Town of Truro, in the the village of Bible Hill, Nova Scotia. We're one hour from Halifax by car and only 40 minutes from the Halifax International Airport. NSAC is about one day's car ride from Boston or Montreal.

Here at NSAC there are four academic departments: Business and Social Sciences, Engineering, Environmental Sciences and Plant and Animal Sciences.

You will find the links of our Academic Departments and other Academic Units, such as Continuing and Distance Education as well as the NSAC Registry, on the menu to your left.
