MTA partners with Parks Canada for experiential learning opportunities

November 21, 2016

Mount Allison University and Parks Canada have signed an MOU to create new experiential learning opportunities for students within Canada’s National Parks and National Historic Sites in southern New Brunswick. Course offerings under the partnership will include an environmental science research methods field camp, as well as a three-day trip geared toward students of fine arts photography. “This collaboration has much potential to benefit both our students and Parks Canada,” says MTA Provost Jeff Ollerhead. “It gives students a chance to step outside the classroom or studio and apply what they are learning in a real-world setting.” MTA
