Online Programs and Courses

We offer several programs entirely online. We also offer a variety of online courses individually, which you may apply to an in-class program later if you choose.

What is it like to learn online at SFU Continuing Studies?

We’ve designed the curriculum of our online courses and programs to meet the scheduling needs of working professionals. You’ll access the courses through Canvas, our learning management system, which is available through the SFU website. Canvas is extremely user-friendly—even if you’ve never studied online before. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection.

Studying online doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on interaction with others. You will work through our online courses with peers from different geographic and professional backgrounds who share their experiences, ideas, and expertise. Additionally, you may contact your classmates and instructors through Canvas.

For a list of Canvas-supported operating systems and web browsers, visit our supported web browsers page. To learn more about Canvas, visit the SFU Canvas Student Guide. For other support and technical information, submit a ticket to the Centre for Online and Distance Education help desk.
