Double Degree Programmes

For students who would like to take their education up a notch, FASS offers Double Degree Programmes (DDPs) designed in collaboration with other Faculties within NUS. Students typically take five years to graduate with Double Honours. You may apply for the following structured DDPs at the point of admission, or opt for a Student-Designed DDP (subject to approval) later in your candidature.

Concurrent Degree Programmes

A Concurrent Degree Programme (CDP) allows students to pursue a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree concurrently. The programme structure allows some of the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree to be counted towards the Master’s degree so that students may graduate in 4.5 to 5 years with both degrees, instead of 5.5 to 6 years if pursued separately.
