Beautiful Facility and Supportive Profs
I had a wonderful experience at SFU during my MPH studies. I love the campus and living in Vancouver. An especially exciting aspect of my program is the wealth and knowledge and calibre of professorship at the University.
DURING MY STUDIES I WAS ABLE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CHILD DEVELOPMENT AND, UNDERSTANDING DIFFERENT KINDS OF METHODOLOGIES. WHICH HELPED ME WITH MY WORK. IF IT WASN´T FOR MY JOB EXPERIENCE I WOULDN´T BE ABLE TO PRACTICE WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IN COLLEGE.
