High School Outreach

Are you a high school teacher, teaching grade 10, 11 and 12 courses? The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is opening its doors to high school students and teachers.

Your class is invited to attend a lecture, participate in a campus tour, and learn about admissions and program options. We'd like to help you help students get a taste of campus life!  

The following undergraduate classes are open to class visits in the spring 2018 term. There is no fee for this field trip. We welcome you to sit in during an entire lecture or just a portion.

To book your visit, please see the Outreach Reservation form.

If you have any questions please email Tammy Theis at DiscoverFASS@sfu.ca.

Small Group Visits to SFU

If you have a small group of students interested in a more specialized subject taught in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, we may be able to arrange a visit to a smaller classroom or lecture hall. Small groups must be between 5 and 10 people.

Please visit individual departments' websites to see their full list of courses offered in spring 2018.

Another way to find potential classes to visit is via SFU's Course Outlines database.

You can also book campus tours at all three SFU campuses.

Other Opportunities

We offer many opportunities for high school students to get involved in university activities, from free public events to expand their intellectual horizons to academic contests to develop their skills.
