CONNECTING THE
POSSIBILITIES

Look beyond the boundaries of a single discipline to navigate new domains and challenges with agility and confidence. 

As the first of its kind in Singapore, the College of Integrative Studies’ Individualised Major will allow students to respond nimbly to industry and societal needs, by individualising their majors to engage with the needs of the future.

CHOOSE YOUR PATH TO
CREATE IMPACT

As global economies continue to rapidly evolve, the College of Integrative Studies will be a place of interdisciplinary learning.

Students will learn to assemble knowledge from domains previously unconnected to attend to the challenges of the day.

Beyond integrating learning across disciplines, our students will benefit from combining lessons from the classroom with robust industry and real-world engagement.  

Integrative studies is ultimately about connecting the possibilities across various paradigms and methods for unprecedented solutions.
