Concurrent Degree Programme


In Singapore, the Master’s degree is increasingly becoming the desired entry level requirement for junior and senior psychologist positions in the Civil Service and the private sector. Our department’s Concurrent Degree Programme [B.Soc.Sci. (Hons.) and M.Soc.Sci. in Psychology] provides psychology majors with the option of making a seamless transition to the Master’s programme, and to secure 2 degrees in 5 years (instead of the usual 6 years if the 2 degrees are taken separately), thereby making them more competitive for industry and graduate school. Graduates from this programme will possess strong quantitative and qualitative research skills, as well as domain expertise in their chosen area of research. To the extent possible, candidates will also be encouraged to attend and present their work at international conferences.

Students in the Concurrent Degree Programme will not be eligible for undergraduate financial aid (e.g. government bursaries, NUS bursaries) and undergraduate tuition fee loan.
