On 21 September 2011, the renewal agreement for the NUS-ANU Joint Masters Degree in Southeast Asian Studies was concluded with the signing of the agreement by Prof Brenda Yeoh, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS), NUS. Dr Andrew Walker, Associate Dean (Education) of the Australian National University (ANU) College of Asia and Pacific was in Singapore as ANU’s representative.
FASS and ANU are well known globally for teaching and research in Asia Pacific studies. To promote further understanding of Asia and the Pacific, in particular Southeast Asia, the FASS and ANU entered into an agreement to offer a Joint Masters Degree in Southeast Asian Studies with effect from the first semester of academic year 2004/2005. The FASS, through its Department of Southeast Asian Studies, and the Faculty of Asian Studies at ANU administer the joint degree.
In this programme, which is a full-time one year course, students will spend their first semester in NUS and the second semester at ANU, where they will complete their research project under joint ANU-NUS supervision.
