USP is a 4-year interdisciplinary academic programme with a residential component. The USP curriculum is rigorous on its own while complementary with one's major.
All NUS students have to complete 70% of their classes within their major, with the remaining 30% devoted to pursuing elective classes that increase breadth. USP students simply replace this 30% with interdisciplinary classes designed and curated by USP faculty members. With small class sizes, students are encouraged to engage intellectually and openly with their professors and peers. Ultimately, we want our students to become adventurous and critical thinkers across different domains.
