Undergraduate Core Curriculum
In 2018 the School launched an innovative Core Curriculum. We believe that our students should acquire knowledge and understanding by delving into works on politics, scientific reasoning, sociology, economics, culture, religion, art, literature, and aesthetics. The modern world is beset with challenges that are multi-faceted—be it poverty, terrorism, pandemics, or climate change. To understand and address these issues requires a holistic understanding, a broad foundation of knowledge, and a diverse set of transferable skills. The interdisciplinary nature of the Core will help ensure that students are equipped with the requisite tools and that they emerge as reflective, empathetic, and historically informed individuals, with an understanding of both global and local current issues. We are confident that—equipped with these skills—our graduates would be able to overcome challenges they face in a rapidly changing world, whether they have to work in the public sector, the private sector, for non-governmental organisations, or in the academia.
