Common Curriculum at Yale-NUS

The Common Curriculum is a signature feature of our Yale-NUS College understanding of liberal arts education. The purpose is to bring cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural Common Curriculum to the regional context. The courses are team-taught by Yale-NUS College faculty. The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) works closes with the Common Curriculum Director and course facilitators to integrate distinctive pedagogy into each course. In addition, we work closely with the Writers’ Centre to integrating writing across the curriculum. Finally, we work with the CIPE office to ensure the best experiential pedagogy is applied to the Week 7 learning outside the classroom that is a signature aspect of the Common Curriculum experience.



The CTL has prepared a booklet, “The Common Curriculum at Yale-NUS College” to share the evolution of the curriculum and the individual courses inside it. Click HERE to read the complete sourcebook.
