The Straits Times carried a feature on the College’s concurrent degree programmes, noting that Yale-NUS students can expand their studies in fields such as computing and medicine. About 10 percent of each cohort in the past three years have enrolled in hybrid programmes that let them earn a master’s degree or double degrees in a shorter time.
ST carried quotes from Executive Vice President (Academic Affairs) Joanne Roberts who noted that these programmes are good opportunities for our students to enhance their learning and that the College is constantly on the lookout for new initiatives that are in line with industry trends. ST also interviewed Yip Jie Ying (Class of 2019) who is on the LKP School CDP and Bryan Tan (Class of 2021) who hopes to enrol in the CDP in Computing. Jie Ying chose to study public policy as it complements her Yale-NUS major in philosophy, politics and economics. Bryan noted that studying the liberal arts helps him see the intersections between the humanities and computing.
