The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) had the highest enrollment by Yale-NUS College students among all NUS faculties over the last five semesters, according to statistics provided by Yale-NUS Registry. 

There have been a total of 729 enrollments by Yale-NUS students in NUS modules since the first semester of Academic Year 2019/2020. FASS modules proved the most popular, comprising 61% of all NUS module enrollments. This figure includes the 17% of modules taken at the Centre for Language Studies (CLS).

The next most popular NUS faculty among Yale-NUS students was the Faculty of Science, which comprised 11% of all NUS module enrollments.

According to Yale-NUS Registry, the data are accurate at the end of instructional week 2 of each semester, and exclude NUS Faculty of Law modules read by Yale-NUS students in the Double Degree Programme.

The social sciences have consistently ranked as the most popular major choices for Yale-NUS students over the years. At the most recent major declaration exercise this year, half of all students in the class of 2023 declared a major in the social sciences.

Other NUS modules that Yale-NUS students have studied also include those from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (6%), NUS Business School (6%), and the School of Computing (3%). These faculties do not have directly equivalent departments in Yale-NUS.

These data were released following the Sept. 28 students’ town hall, where Tan Eng Chye, President of NUS, speculated that the most popular NUS modules among Yale-NUS students would come from the School of Computing and the Business School.
