Sustainable Development @ SFU has a distinguished record of education and research, which we are now advancing even further with the creation of the Sustainable Development Program. The new Sustainable Development Program brings together four academic credentials (previously offered through the Sustainable Community Development program and through the Development and Sustainability Program). The program is affiliated with the Centre for Sustainable Development, a research unit also in the Faculty of Environment.
The Sustainable Development Program is particularly valuable for anyone aspiring to a career in development work of any kind, whether in their own communities or internationally. Sustainable Development is ideal for students thirsting to understand and change their world, and to also have a vibrant career.
