[jointly offered by Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences and Faculty of Science, with participation from Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Law, School of Design & Environment, NUS Business School, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health]

The Bachelor of Environmental Studies (BES) is a 4-year direct Honours degree programme offered jointly by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences with participation from Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Law, School of Design and Environment, NUS Business School, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health. NUS recognises that the environmental issues that are presented to the world today are global, complex and interconnected. There is a compelling need for new educational models such as the BES to nurture graduates who can think broadly and deeply so as to effectively address the societal and scientific needs for understanding complex environmental issues. At NUS, we hope to continue to be the preferred choice of top students in Singapore and around the world by always putting ourselves at the forefront of innovative education.
