This is a jointly taught, assessed and awarded undergraduate degree offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH). The degree will combine the strengths of both curricula, integrate international experience fully into a student’s course of study, and confer a doubly validated qualification.

FASS students who successfully complete Honours requirements in this programme will be awarded Bachelor of Arts with Honours by NUS. To graduate with Honours from UNC, FASS students must complete the Honours Programme requirements at UNC.

The joint degree will be a common and distinctive programme, different from the degrees in either of the two universities. It will combine the broad, structured General Education component of the UNC-CH degree, with the extended, in-depth study of the major at NUS.

Students will stay at the host institution for two semesters. NUS students go relatively early in their course of study (semesters 3 and 4), in order to benefit from UNC-CH’s general education offerings.

Unlike SEP, students will transfer grades as well as credits. Grades will be converted using an agreed and equitable scale. Modules and grades may be used towards any part of the student’s programme of study, including electives, major, minor and general education requirements.

This programme is available to FASS students majoring in Economics, English Literature, Geography, History, Political Science and Global Studies.
