Yale-NUS B.A. (Hons.)–LL.B. (Hons.)
Double Degree Programme

 

Overview

This double degree programme in Law and Liberal Arts is an innovative program offered jointly by Yale-NUS College and NUS Law for those seeking a broad liberal arts education in addition to their professional training in the law. The five-year honours programme was established by Yale-NUS College and NUS with the aim of attracting students of the highest calibre from Singapore and around the world. This programme will provide an interdisciplinary legal education in a residential, liberal arts setting. Up to 25 students will be admitted into this prestigious programme each year. Students who have met the graduation criteria will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) degree from Yale-NUS College and a Bachelor of Laws (with Honours) degree from the NUS Law.

Students are required to be resident at Yale-NUS College for the first four years of the program. At this dedicated campus they will participate fully in the Yale-NUS community and enjoy the benefits of residential college life. In their first year of study they will take Yale-NUS Common Curriculum courses and a Law elective in the first Special Term of the Summer. In the second, third and fourth years students will complete the Yale-NUS Common Curriculum, take Yale-NUS electives, and take core and elective Law courses. For Law classes, students travel to the Bukit Timah Campus (BTC), where the Faculty of Law is located. Students are also eligible to participate in a semester of an exchange programme abroad. In the fifth year, students will move out of the Yale-NUS College residential college and continue with their academic pursuits at BTC. Students will also complete a capstone project in their fifth year, which entails a research and writing project in a topic that combines Law and the Liberal Arts.
