School of Social Sciences
A warm welcome to the School of Social Sciences (SSS), Nanyang Technological University Singapore!
Currently, some 400 graduate students are studying in our PhD and MA programmes (by research) and our two MSc programmes in Applied Economics and Applied Gerontology. Our School’s holistic and rigorous education aims to prepare our students with a strong knowledge base and analytical and critical capacities to stand them in good stead in their future careers. Students can expand their learning horizons through overseas exchanges and internship experiences in Singapore.
In addition to offering a broad range of high-quality educational options, our faculty, coming as they do from some of the best universities around the world, are engaged actively in cutting-edge research in their fields. To promote and facilitate conversation and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries, the School has established four interdisciplinary research clusters, namely Aging, Inclusion and Healthcare; Cognitive and Behavioural Science; Environment and Sustainability; and Policy and Society as strategic areas of research, which also include a significant dimension of international collaboration and exchange.
In a fast-moving world of dazzling technological advances, there is an ever more urgent need to understand how humans organise their lives and affairs in socially relevant ways. We invite you to join us on this fascinating journey as we explore fundamental questions of human psychology and sociality.
