The original studio course was – and still is – run through SFU’s Semester in Dialogue. The Semester at CityStudio program is a semester-long immersive experience that provides students with the opportunity to co-create experimental projects in interdisciplinary teams. The course runs for the full fall term and welcomes students from any participating institution.

Each term we also match projects with a number of SFU courses on the Burnaby, Vancouver and Surrey campuses.
