At HASS, we seek to prepare our students for a fast-changing globalised knowledge economy, and for those interested in teaching and research, to become future leaders in their academic fields.
Our students work alongside top scholars not only from the College but also the other Schools and Colleges at NTU, and have opportunities to collaborate with other researchers and postgraduate students from our many overseas partner universities. While disciplinary expertise remains critical, the College encourages interdisciplinary explorations that promise to break new ground and expand our intellectual horizons. Engagement with society is closely aligned with research in HASS. We pride ourselves in being able to provide a safe, intellectually vibrant and respectful environment that is conducive to personal development and the flourishing of ideas. With ample support for research, our students are well positioned to make their mark on the global scene, whether in academia, government or industry.
