Prospective Students

I welcome inquiries from potential MA and Ph.D. students who are interested in the intersections of art, science and technology and have a strong commitment to history, theory and practice. 

If you are interested in applying send me an e-mail at gacevess (at) sfu (dot) ca with the following materials:

  • send a description of research interests that shows evidence of connections with cMAS’s current lines of research
  • a curriculum vitae
  • a copy of your unofficial transcript that includes your GPA

Meeting with me to discuss your interest and research does not guarantee admission to the program. All admissions are handled and vetted by  SIAT Admissions Committee and all applications need to be submitted via the SFU graduate admissions system.

Also, I suggest you familiarize yourself with the following:

  • Acquaint yourself with the SIAT and SFU Admission requirements. You must satisfy all institutional requirements for admission, which you can review at Our admissions cycle at SIAT regularly begins in September and ends in February of the same year. Please note that SFU’s minimum GPA for admission is 3.0; however, I generally look for students who are closer to a 4.0 to ensure the greatest possible opportunities for scholarships and fellowships.
  • Familiarize yourself with the School of Interactive Arts and Technology. Review our course requirements and course offerings and decide if this looks like the right program for you.
  • Most importantly, familiarize yourself with cMAS current research and think about how your interests, expertise, and background will enable you to generate new research questions and projects in relation to our current interests.
  • I can only admit students to whom I can offer RA support, and who demonstrate strong potential to be successful in scholarship competitions.
