School Information

The S R Nathan School of Human Development (NSHD) is a multi-disciplinary school dedicated to the applied study of inherent human potential across a broad spectrum of social disciplines. The School's teaching and research encompass the range of factors influencing the abilities of the individual, the family and the community. With programmes from Early Childhood Education to Gerontology, our interests cover humanity's socio-cultural growth throughout a lifespan. Our work has the advancement of service at its heart, and this is especially manifested in such disciplines as Social Work and Counselling. Other programmes, such as Education, Human Resource Management, and Community Leadership recognise the dynamic relationship between the individual and the community as one that is transformative, and always with the extension of well-being as an imperative.

The School's vision of "Transforming Lives, Serving Society" is a tribute to the legacy of late-President S.R. Nathan. His contribution to Singapore's Social Service sector, the Labour Movement, as well as other nurturing professions, continues to inspire our dedication.

Office of Graduate Studies

The Office of Graduate Studies (OGS) oversees the governing policies and facilitates the development of all graduate programmes in the University. In addition, OGS also manages the multidisciplinary Master of Social Science programme and the Doctor of Philosophy programme.


Master of Social Science

The contemporary world is becoming more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) than ever. Many real-world problems require a multidisciplinary approach to address. The Master of Social Science (MSSC) programme provides an unique opportunity for interdisciplinary education and career development, allowing individuals to integrate different disciplines in addressing contemporary issues and challenges in their profession, industry or the society-at-large. This programme will be especially suitable for candidates who are entrepreneurial and self-directed, charting a learning journey into the future of work.

Doctor of Philosophy

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme aims to develop practice-oriented thought-leaders for the industry/society. It caters to those who wish to conduct applied research work that addresses issues and challenges pertinent to society, industry or professional practice. While students may choose to specialise in a specific discipline, researches that adopt an interdisciplinary approach are encouraged in view of the complexity of many contemporary issues and challenges.

The SUSS Core

"Learning to tackle important questions central to creating a better society starts with asking questions about human values, human development, and human potential."

The SUSS Core is a dedicated cluster of courses grounded in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences that forms the foundational and common experience for all SUSS undergraduates. It focuses on emerging and complex local and global issues, and teaches students to think critically, reflexively, empathetically and creatively to provide personal responses as well as responses as trained professionals based on ideas of human values and human potential.

As part of the College of Lifelong and Experiential Learning (CLEL) at SUSS, the Centre for Experiential Learning (CEL) designs and conducts comprehensive programmes and short courses that employ experiential platforms like internships, community engagement, teambuilding, and overseas immersions to help learners acquire professional competency, develop social responsibility, and cultivate self-directed life-long learning habits. These three essential attributes of locally-grounded yet globally-adroit learners of tomorrow are encapsulated by SUSS’s educational philosophy of Head, Heart, and Habit.
