Certificate in SIS, 2013
BA (Geography), 2013
Maziar was a BA candidate in the Department of Geography. He was a senior undergraduate student pursuing a Human Geography major with an Environmental Specialty. He has also completed a Certificate in Spatial Information Systems (SIS).
He said: “Geography has always intrigued me. After taking my first geography course at SFU during my very first semester I knew right away that I wanted to concentrate my studies in this discipline.”
He chose to do an undergraduate degree at SFU’s Geography Department because it addresses both his passion for people and his curiosity of the environment. He was particularly attracted to opportunities to learn through doing, such as the field experiences offered through courses and the hands-on lab components of the SIS Certificate.
As he has completed his degree, he is excited to start the next chapter of his life as an SFU alumnus. He says: “The Faculty of Environment has allowed me to excel not only academically but also professionally. The vast experiences gained during my undergraduate career have created great networking and employment opportunities as well as given me the tools and confidence to succeed in my future.”
