The Special Programme offered by Yale-NUS College and the Yale School of the Environment is designed for students who want to pursue careers in an environmental field.

After completing four years of undergraduate study, the Yale-NUS Bachelor of Arts (Honours) or Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree will be awarded. Following one additional academic graduate year of study at Yale School of the Environment, students will be awarded the Master of Environmental Science (MES) or Master of Environmental Management (MEM) degree.

To be eligible for the Special Programme, Yale-NUS students must complete the Environmental Studies major requirements and spend one semester during their junior year at Yale, taking upper level courses in Yale College in the US. Students admitted to the Special Programme will also be expected to work in an environmentally-related position for one year following graduation from Yale-NUS, and prior to matriculating at Yale School of the Environment.

The Master of Environmental Science degree is designed for students interested in conducting scientific research that contributes toward basic and applied knowledge. The course of study includes formalised training in the philosophy, ethics, and practice of science.

The Master of Environmental Management Degree is designed for students pursuing careers such as environmental policy, analysis, stewardship, education, consulting, or management concerning natural resource sustainability. The programme aims to provide students with a scientific understanding of ecological and social systems, which then can be applied in a policy or management context.
