The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a key academic partner, supporter and funder. Their total participation as of summer 2019 is as follows:
Since our launch in 2011, students from multiple UBC faculties have participated in the SFU Semester in Dialogue at CityStudio program, a term-long immersive experience that provides students with the opportunity to co-create experimental projects with interdisciplinary teams.
Each term we also match projects with a number of courses on the UBC campus and have been working with the Faculty of Education’s Masters of Education for Sustainability program since 2015.
See a list of current courses below or get in touch if you’d like CityStudio to work with your course.
