Welcome to FCAT

Message from the Dean

Dear incoming students,

I am writing as Dean of the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT) to let you know that we strongly value your interest in our programs. We are aware that this is a time of extra uncertainty for all of you given the COVID-19 pandemic and its timing in relation to this important point in your lives. At Simon Fraser University and in our Faculty, I have been amazed at the level of commitment of our students, staff and faculty to adapt under these trying circumstances. Please be assured that our commitment to provide you the best possible education has not wavered. Our programs are innovative and unique, and we look forward to welcoming you into our community. You will not regret choosing SFU and FCAT.
