The objectives of this program are related to the development of the Acadian community and the promotion of the Acadian culture.

The cultural, social, and linguistic vitality of Nova Scotia’s Acadian community depends largely on the study programs offered by the province’s French-language university, which have been central to its mission since 1890.

Therefore, the Major in Acadian Studies program, the first and still the only one in the world, focuses on the history, literature, language, traditions, and social behaviour of Acadians. Through teaching, research, and knowledge dissemination, it allows students to learn of and appreciate the particular cultural experience of the Acadians in relation to the culture of other francophone regions in North America and the rest of the world. Finally, this program prepares innovative leaders who will be able to play a key role in various activities related to the awareness, preservation, and promotion of the Acadian culture for the emancipation of the French fact in Nova Scotia and elsewhere.
