Named after a journalist who rose to become ‘The People’s President’, the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI) has a proud history of preparing students to be at the forefront of the communication and information industry. The WKWSCI community is academically-driven, energetic, creative, as well as being close-knit and orientated to contribute to the community, society and the world.

At WKWSCI, we are constantly adapting our curriculum to explore, examine and address the complex challenges of our time. Our undergraduate programme combines experiential, innovative and overseas learning opportunities. Through our global connections, our students are provided with various opportunities to live and/or learn abroad, such as through one of our trademark overseas modules or semester-long exchange.

Our graduate programmes allow students to enrol in research graduate programmes or in our four coursework programmes that further provide educational opportunities in specialized fields. We are committed to delivering quality education experiences that prepares students to deepen and further develop their careers. The outstanding WKWSCI faculty includes some of the foremost global scholars who teach and conduct research on a diverse range of topics such as: AI and human-computer interaction, health and science communication, mobile communication, strategic communication, neuro-media studies, big data analytics and film/documentary studies. Demonstrating the relevance of their research, at the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, many WKWSCI faculty are conducting research related to communication issues around the coronavirus.

We are also proud of our alumni who have made an impact in various fields, both in Singapore and internationally. Many have gone far and wide and are providing unique global links to the school.

The exceptional School, faculty and students have together made major impact in the spheres of communication and information, winning awards in creative, academic, journalistic and research arenas at the highest levels of international competitions.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
