Yale-NUS to offer new double degree

On Monday, Yale-NUS announced the launch of a new partnership with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore: a concurrent degree program in public policy for students at the young college.

The program, which will accept roughly five students, is slated to begin in August 2016. Students will be able to apply to the program during the second semester of their third year at Yale-NUS, and selected students will graduate with an honors B.A. or B.S. degree from Yale-NUS and a master’s degree from the LKY School in public policy.
