Engage your mind. Enrich your life.
Our eight departments will introduce you to the wonders of the natural world, from infinitesimally small subatomic particles to the infinitely large universe – and everything else in between. Along the way, you will acquire new skills, sharpen your mind, develop your curiosity, and gain facility in the language of numbers. Scientist, teacher, journalist, lawyer, physician, entrepreneur – whatever your career goals, a science education will help you get there. And don’t forget about life after work. The scientific understanding and powers of observation that you acquire at SFU will enrich your leisure time, and that of your family and friends, for a lifetime.
Please take a few moments to explore our many programs. We have one that is just right for you.
