Welcome to the FASS Connection

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) is the founding faculty of Simon Fraser University and promotes SFU’s commitment to providing people with the resources to think critically, challenge the status quo, and engage communities.

As members of FASS, our students, researchers, and staff work with our partners in the community to put the human perspective at the core of inquiry.

By the time our students graduate, they will have received wide exposure to a range of academic subjects in the humanities and the sciences. They will have also developed the capacity to pull apart complex information and build a rigorous understanding of global issues, preparing them to engage in careers in law, medicine, science, teaching, government, literature, writing, journalism, law enforcement, public policy, and academic research.

FASS commits to nurturing the engaged person who, in turn, engages the world.
