Semester in Dialogue

Semester in Dialogue is one of the many unique courses at SFU that bridges the classroom with community. It's an  immersive course that encourages your passion for improving society and teaches you skills to pursue it.

Semester in Dialogue is a space for students to reflect on what they're doing and why it matters. Our past students have gained deep friendships that last beyond the classroom. Plus, it's a great way to earn extra credits as it's a compilation of two courses in one.


At our core, universities should inspire students to take responsibility for and contribute to the world around them, and provide the ability to communicate and be effective through tools such as dialogue.

We believe that collaborative approaches to resolving complex issues yield the most productive solutions. Our hope is that this unique educational model will reveal a set of key features for dialogue-based learning.
