Five things you didn't know about the Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science is Dal’s largest, with eight departments and over 3,700 undergraduate students and 470 graduate students. In Atlantic Canada, it’s a research powerhouse, conducting more than $26-million in research last year. Initiatives like Math Circles take our professors and student volunteers into classrooms across the province to show young students a side of math that standard curriculum may not cover. Together, our students, faculty, staff and alumni show enthusiasm for the wonder of science and a passion to share their knowledge with the world.

- 13 Nobel laureates have delivered public lectures about physics on campus
