The School of Interactive Arts + Technology offers a number of undergraduate degree programs that you can explore below. For more information about degree programs offered at Simon Fraser University please visit the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.
Students completing a SIAT undergraduate or joint program (not a minor) may also choose to complete a concentration. Information on these concentrations can be found in the associated checklist, or on the program concentrations page.
SIAT Undergraduate Programs
All SIAT students complete a common set of first and second year courses. In third and fourth year, students may choose to complete one (or more) concentration(s) in Interactive Systems, Design, or Media Arts. Alternatively, students may explore courses across the concentrations and graduate with no concentration. Students may choose to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc).
Honours BA/BSc in Interactive Arts + Technology
An honours degree combines a standard major with an Honours project. This provides our top students with the opportunity to work closely with their faculty members on a significant year long research project in an area of mutual interest and can be especially helpful for those preparing for graduate school in the future.
A student who already holds a Bachelor’s degree(s) from an approved institution may complete a second or subsequent Bachelor’s degree (BA or BSc) in Interactive Arts + Technology. The basic requirement is the completion of the upper division requirements; completion of lower division prerequisites may be required or may be waived at the discretion of the department. Students may choose to complete one (or more) concentration(s) in Interactive Systems, Design, or Media Arts. Alternatively, students may explore courses across the concentrations and graduate with no concentration.
