13 February 2013: Top Yale Scholars to teach at Yale-NUS

When Singapore’s first liberal arts college officially opens its doors in August this year, its students will have access to some of Yale University’s top scholars who are experts in their fields. 34 Yale scholars will visit Yale-NUS College over the next four years to teach courses and give guest lectures in disciplines that cut across the arts, humanities, and social and natural sciences. Some will teach mini-courses of up to two weeks, while others will stay for a full semester. These top scholars bring with them years of experience in undergraduate teaching. Visiting Yale Faculty will primarily conduct classes and give guest lectures, while Consulting Yale Faculty will also be involved in the further development of the Yale-NUS Curriculum, on top of their teaching and lecturing responsibilities.
