• Common Curriculum

    At the heart of every student’s education is a program of coursework known as the Common Curriculum. Centered on the most fundamental questions in the liberal arts and science, it will offer students some understanding of the natural world, human psyche and social life, literature, the arts and history, and philosophical and mathematical thought.

    Yale-NUS interns are full of initiative and are always up for a challenge. They are energized by new ideas and their enthusiasm enlivens the team. They are independent workers and creative problem solvers, who can identify new ways of doing things. They are also good team members who play well in a team, whether in leadership or supporting roles. They demonstrate a good awareness of team dynamics, work well with others and exercise empathy in their thoughts and actions.
