Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences
The Centre for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) is a major research centre of the College of Humanities, Arts, & Social Sciences. It was established in 2006 to facilitate, coordinate and encourage inter-disciplinary research in NTU.
CLASS provides a platform for interaction among local and international scholars from diverse disciplines. The Centre organizes academic workshops, symposia, and conferences, and hosts distinguished lecturers and visiting scholars. CLASS is also committed to developing important links as well as initiating interdisciplinary projects internationally.
CLASS, together with the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, offers various seed funding opportunities to support research in the Social Sciences, Humanities, and the arts with focus on interdisciplinary research. The seed funding schemes also encourage faculty to compete for external competitive grants after the completion of the research project.
