Since 2009, Yale and the National University of Singapore have been working together to imagine an ideal undergraduate education for the twenty-first century. The result is Yale-NUS College.To thrive in today's global economy new graduates need more than professional expertise. They need the kind of “zoom in and zoom out” ability that comes from studying multiple disciplines and working across cultures.At Yale-NUS, students will experience more than a translation of the American liberal arts curriculum in a new setting. Rather, the innovative curriculum designed specifically for Yale-NUS College maximizes its location in Asia and allows all students to develop integrated competence in science, social science, and humanities more rigorously than the leading liberal arts colleges.
