In collaboration with the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, this highly inter-disciplinary degree offers students the opportunity to specialize in two major academic disciplines from the two Schools.

The programme equips students with the transferrable skills of a combined education for successful careers in the rapidly changing environment of the 21st century. In Singapore with its population encountering increasing higher levels of stress, there is a growing emphasis on awareness of mental health and a demand for professionals with interdisciplinary training in Psychology. This programme offers more consistent depth in both disciplines. Students who have a curiosity in areas such as human emotions, behaviors and thoughts can now adopt a more integrated approach towards its understanding.
