Welcome to Southeast Asian Studies @ NUS
Life isn't divided up into neat disciplinary boxes. Learning about the world shouldn't be boxed in either.
The Department of Southeast Asian Studies offers an ideal alternative to students who find disciplinary approaches to learning narrow or restrictive, and those who prefer a more subject-oriented curriculum. Our department aims to offer a truly inter-disciplinary approach to learning which draws on different perspectives and methodologies from the humanities and social sciences, all thoroughly informed by local experience and knowledge.
