Strategy & Policy
Whether you’re interested in studying communications and media policy in our School of Communication, learning about the business side of the publishing industry, or working with our Centre for Policy Research on Science and Technology (CPROST), our faculty offers many opportunities to engage with questions of strategy and policy in communication, art and technology.
School of Communication
A major in communication provides students with a foundation in critical thinking, reading, analysis and production in the field of communication that allows them to study the cultures, histories, technologies, and ideologies of the media and communication infrastructures in our society to inform and shape politics and media policy.
Our School of Communication has an international reputation for its critical scholarship on urgent social and political problems affecting contemporary societies, locally and globally. We offer graduate students rigorous training in the critical foundation of communication theory, political economy, policy, the study of culture and media, and technology and data studies.
The Global Communication MA Double Degree Program in our School of Communication offers students an environment to learn about, and tackle, issues in global communication. Students complete the first year in Vancouver and the second year in Beijing giving them a Master of Arts from SFU, and a Master of Arts from the Communication University of China.
