3.1Common Curriculum
Communication Even as students at Yale-NUS College pursue personal goals and develop specific knowledge and skills, they all share in
one powerful intellectual experience at the heart of their education: they complete an ambitious programme of coursework

known as the Common Curriculum. This linked set of courses aims to create a community of learning centered on the

most fundamental questions in the liberal arts and science. All individuals benefit from some understanding of the natural
world, of the human psyche and social life, literature, the arts and history, and philosophical and mathematical thought.
Other Multidisciplinary/ Special
Programmes
Studying these topics together in a structured fashion, students build a common foundation of knowledge that covers
many disciplines. They study issues of abiding human interest and of immediate contemporary importance in a deep and

sustained manner, and they emerge with a shared set of references, allowing them to fall easily into serious conversation

http://www-test.nus.edu.sg/registrar/nusbulletin/yale-nus-college/learning-experience[5/7/2014 10:03:52 AM]


The Learning Experience | NUS Registrar's Office

with one another about agenda-setting books they have read and new scientific research programmes to which they have
Part III: Modules
contributed. In this way the Common Curriculum creates a lively campus environment full of well-informed discussion and
Modules debate, which in turn deepens the intellectual development of each student.

Archived Bulletins
Creativity and a sense of wonder are highly prized at Yale-NUS, as are sharp analytic skills and the ability to craft
AY2012/13 persuasive arguments. In each part of the Common Curriculum, students are asked to engage in research and articulate
AY2011/12 and defend their positions, beliefs, and assumptions. Through such education, they gain an unusually broad understanding
of many fields and a robust confidence in their ability to deploy different modes of thought and analysis. The habits of
AY2010/11
mind and the intellectual abilities gained through this intense form of education will serve them well as they confront the
AY2009/10 complex challenges of the 21st century world. In addition to the practical benefits that this course of study provides,
students often find that a liberal arts and science education offers other rewards too. It can enrich their inner lives, lead
them into friendships different from the ones that they might find elsewhere, and foster their ability to step outside the
assumptions of their own time and place. The Common Curriculum is part of a larger collegiate environment that helps
individuals to cultivate their talents, consider their social responsibilities, and appreciate the humanizing influence of
intellectual inquiry.

Teaching and Learning

In most Common Curriculum courses, weekly lectures offer students a sustained analysis of their topic while small
seminars encourage more active learning. The seminars are held twice weekly in groups of no more than 18 students.
During those sessions the students may plunge into analysis of a data set or discuss the meaning of challenging texts.
They can practice different forms of oral argument, from impromptu spoken responses to prepared presentations to
debates. They can present creative essays as well as laboratory reports. They can offer quantitative analysis and assess
existing scientific evidence; they can learn to draw inferences from data and to present their findings in clear and effective
visual formats, drawing on artistic as well as logical skills.

Students will find that the Common Curriculum gives their studies a degree of intellectual coherence rarely found in higher
education today. The courses have been designed in concert with one another, and each is carefully designed to be
appropriate for students from a wide range of academic and personal backgrounds. Students are led to draw connections
between multiple fields, discover links between literature and the sciences, for example, and connect these discoveries to
topics in the social sciences. Experts from outside the Yale-NUS community deliver guest lectures to offer additional
vantage points on select topics.

One distinctive feature of the curriculum is Week Seven, a mid-semester programme of discussions and projects that is
outside the scope of ordinary coursework. For one week, students leave behind disciplinary coursework and the regular
seminars to share insights gained from different fields and bring them to bear on new projects. Faculty lead broad
thematic discussions bridging the sciences, social sciences and humanities, and faculty and students together enter into
brief but intense learning experiences that cross boundaries and promote creative thought. They may undertake research
in a laboratory or explore a nearby field site; they may work with a professor on archival material, create a film or stage a
one-act play by a local playwright. The week culminates in a day of presentations and performances demonstrating what
has been achieved, and students return to the semesters work refreshed with a renewed sense of purpose.

3.2Majors
Yale-NUS College is a dynamic start-up in the world of higher education. Its faculty is currently engaged in the exciting
process of devising a fresh curriculum that draws on the best from the tradition of liberal arts education, while rethinking
old practices in light of pedagogical innovations, advanced learning technologies, and the needs of 21st century students.

We have completed the first phase of designing the majors, and their preliminary descriptions represent current thinking
about their content, structure, and intellectual flavor. Undoubtedly, however, details about the majors will continue to
evolve, with input from students as well as faculty. Students who enter the College will therefore be more than recipients
of an education; they will be crucial participants in the development of a new style of liberal arts education for a rapidly
changing world.

Each major provides systematic training in a specific academic discipline or interdisciplinary area. The majors are
designed to give students ample scope and flexibility to explore their interest in a chosen area of knowledge, while
providing direction and depth to their studies. Every students selection and planning of a major will be guided by close
personalized interaction with faculty advisors at Yale-NUS. In designing the majors and helping each student map a path
through them, faculty members consider not only the merits of each course on its own, but also the way in which the
courses work together to build a coherent set of insights, skills, and knowledge for each student.

Each major builds on a foundation provided by the Common Curriculum, and requires a total of 10 courses in addition to
the Common Curriculum. The fourth year capstone project counts for two of those 10 courses. Most majors also require

http://www-test.nus.edu.sg/registrar/nusbulletin/yale-nus-college/learning-experience[5/7/2014 10:03:52 AM]


The Learning Experience | NUS Registrar's Office

at least one gateway course, to be completed before the beginning of the students third year at Yale-NUS.

Every student at Yale-NUS will complete a capstone project as part of his or her major, a year-long supervised endeavor
that will develop initiative and independence in research. Students will present the results of their work at the end of the
fourth year in presentations to audiences of their peers in the field as well as to faculty and students in other disciplines.
Each major will have its own support network for students engaged in capstone projects, including faculty-led seminars
for sharing work-in-progress, laboratory and studio spaces, as well as resources for improving the quality of the oral,
visual, and written presentation of ongoing research. Graduating students will enjoy the self-confidence and initiative that
comes from having successfully conducted a sustained and independent research inquiry.

3.3Degrees Offered
The Yale-NUS College will offer a full-time, four-year course of study, culminating in either of the following:
Bachelor of Arts with Honours
Bachelor of Science with Honours

Each student will select a Major from approximately 15 fields of study.

The first two years will be weighted toward a common curriculum, designed to establish a shared educational foundation
for all Yale-NUS students. During these two years, students will have intensive exposure to important fields and topics in
the humanities and social sciences, as well as a sequence of science courses and the related laboratory experience.
Skills development in writing, speaking and conducting independent research will also be emphasized, and there will be
opportunities to take elective courses of particular interest.

At the end of the second year, students will select a Major; throughout the third and fourth years, students will take
courses appropriate to their selected Major, as well as two more common curriculum courses and other electives. All
Majors will require a year-long research seminar and presentation of a senior thesis as a condition of graduation.

3.3.1Double Degree Programmes


International legal work, for which Singapore is a hub, increasingly involves issues with transnational dimensions relating
to commercial, environmental, and corporate, and financial services law. This means there is a demand for lawyers with
strong backgrounds in a variety of subjects including global affairs, environmental studies, life sciences, economics, and
history.

The Double Degree Programme in Law is a prestigious five-year programme, offered jointly by Yale-NUS College and the
NUS Faculty of Law, and provides a truly unique and interdisciplinary legal education in a residential, liberal arts setting.
Successful candidates will graduate after five years of study with a Bachelor of Arts (with Honors) degree from Yale-NUS
College and a Bachelor of Laws (with Honors) degree from the NUS Faculty of Law.

For the first four years of the programme, students will live at Yale-NUS College and enjoy the full benefits of the
residential college experience. Double Degree students will spend their entire first year at Yale-NUS College, taking the
Common Curriculum and a specific law-related elective. In Years 2-4, students will split their time between the Common
Curriculum, elective courses at Yale-NUS College, and core and elective law courses at NUS Laws Bukit Timah campus.
It will also be possible to build in a semester of an exchange programme abroad at one of NUS Laws partner institutions.
In Year 5, students will move out of their Yale-NUS residential college and take classes full-time at Bukit Timah. A
capstone project will also be pursued in Year 5, entailing a research and writing project in a topic combining law and the
liberal arts.

Graduates of the Double Degree Programme will qualify for admissions to the legal profession as Advocates and
Solicitors of the High Court of Singapore. They may expect to work for a diverse set of global employers including
Singapore and international law firms, large commercial banks, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations,
and institutions such as the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Media Development Authority, the Infocomm
Development Authority, and the Competition Commission of Singapore.

3.3.2Concurrent Degree Programmes


The Five-Year Concurrent Degree Programme offered by Yale-NUS and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental
Studies (YFES) is designed for students who want to pursue careers in an environmental field. The programme will begin

http://www-test.nus.edu.sg/registrar/nusbulletin/yale-nus-college/learning-experience[5/7/2014 10:03:52 AM]


The Learning Experience | NUS Registrar's Office

accepting students from the inaugural August 2013 intake in December 2016:

The key features of the Concurrent Degree Programme are as follows:


The Yale-NUS Bachelor of Arts (Honors) or Bachelor of Science (Honors) degree will be awarded following
completion of four years of undergraduate study.
For Yale-NUS students admitted to the YFES 5th Year Concurrent Degree Programme, the Master of
Environmental Science (MES) or Master of Environmental Management (MEM) degree will be awarded following
one additional academic graduate year of study at YFES.
To be eligible for the 5th Year Programme, Yale-NUS students must complete the Environmental Studies major
requirements and spend one semester during their junior or senior year at Yale, taking upper level courses in Yale
College in the US.
Admitted students will also be expected to work in an environmentally-related position for one year following
graduation from Yale-NUS, and prior to matriculating at YFES.
The Master of Environmental Science Degree is designed for students interested in conducting scientific research
that contributes toward basic and applied knowledge. The course of study includes formalized training in the
philosophy, ethics, and practice of science.
The Master of Environmental Management Degree is designed for students pursuing careers such as environmental
policy, analysis, stewardship, education, consulting, or management concerning natural resource sustainability. The
programme aims to provide students with a scientific understanding of ecological and social systems, which then
can be applied in a policy or management context.

3.4Special Programmes
The World Is the Campus

The Centre for International and Professional Experience (CIPE) is the Yale-NUS students gateway to the world.
Through the Centre, students will be able access a portfolio of global opportunities designed to enhance their academic

Even as students at Yale-NUS College pursue personal goals and develop specific knowledge and skills, they all share in
Education at NUS one powerful intellectual experience at the heart of their education: they complete an ambitious programme of coursework

About NUS
Yale-NUS College is a dynamic start-up in the world of higher education. Its faculty is currently engaged in the exciting
Education at NUS process of devising a fresh curriculum that draws on the best from the tradition of liberal arts education, while rethinking
Policies and Procedures old practices in light of pedagogical innovations, advanced learning technologies, and the needs of 21st century students.

Part II: Programmes We have completed the first phase of designing the majors, and their preliminary descriptions represent current thinking

Faculty of Law courses work together to build a coherent set of insights, skills, and knowledge for each student.

Yong Loo Lin School of


Medicine
Each major builds on a foundation provided by the Common Curriculum, and requires a total of 10 courses in addition to

4.2Financial Aid and Awards


Yale-NUS College welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. We seek the best and brightest students who will take
advantage of the unique opportunity to experience a residential liberal arts education in Singapore.

Yale-NUS gives its students access to a remarkable and affordable education, comprised of numerous opportunities for
global study and internships, culminating in exceptional value for our students when compared to leading colleges abroad.

Yale-NUS also offers a strong financial aid programme to its students. Merit-based scholarships are given out to
recognize the exceptional qualities of students in the College. Need-based study awards are also given out to ensure that
Yale-NUS will always be accessible to talented students regardless of their financial situations.

Similar to Yale University and NUS, Yale-NUS College is committed to a need-blind admissions policy. The ability of a
student to pay for his/her education at Yale-NUS will not affect his/her admissions decision.

Over and above the fees that are paid by students or supported with scholarships, the Ministry of Education provides a
subsidy to the College for every Singaporean student that covers a portion of the full cost of education. International
students and permanent residents of Singapore are also eligible for this subsidy if they agree to take up employment in
Singapore, or with a Singapore-based company overseas, for three years after graduation. Those international students
and permanent residents who do not wish to take up this government subsidy and work in Singapore, or with a
Singapore-registered company, after graduation will have the option of paying a supplementary fee in cash or covering
the fee through access to a reasonable loan programme offered by the College.

In addition, a number of Community Service Fellowships for international students on financial aid who wish to return to
their home countries upon graduation to pursue public or community service employment will be available from funds
designated by donors for that specific purpose.
