SFU’s Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences [FASS] has launched a pilot program to help students acquire the skills necessary in be successful in school and work.
The FASS Forward program involves nine microcredit skills-based courses that cover topics such as writing for a public audience, social media, conflict negotiation, and personal finance skills.
The courses were developed in response to a national survey by the Conference Board of Canada, which argued that graduates of social sciences and humanities programs needed more support in articulating the value of their degree to employers. All courses can be completed in a one-month time frame and are open to all students.
