Welcome From The Vice Dean

The National University of Singapore with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) is delighted to offer FASStrack Asia: The Summer School in June 2016, which will take place in Singapore, one of the most modern and dynamic cities in the world.

As a leading university centred in Asia, NUS has ranked consistently as one of the top universities in the world that places a strong emphasis on a high quality, globally-oriented educational experience. As a Faculty, FASS is among the largest faculties at NUS with a rich history spanning over 85 years. We offer the most comprehensive education in the humanities, social sciences and Asian studies in this part of the world. Our strong international reputation for education and research excel-lence is a result of close to 500 highly respected professors and lecturers who are dedicated and passionate about their research and teaching. And they bring all their knowledge and expertise to bear in the courses to be taught at FASStrack Asia.

With Asia in the world’s spotlight as it undergoes rapid growth, the summer programme will tap into our research strengths in the region and offer students an enriching knowledge and understanding of various Asian-related topics and issues. Taught over a 5-week summer period, students will attend classes, participate in active discussions and learn from academic experts specializing in their area of study. In 2016, FASStrack Asia will also continue to offer courses and field trips that will complement each another for a more holistic summer experience.

Besides NUS students, FASStrack Asia also welcomes university students from all over the world to join us for the summer so as to enhance the cultural exchanges and diversity of the programme.

We look forward to seeing you at FASStrack Asia: The Summer School in June 2016.
