The School of Social Sciences (SSS) is home to research and education in the social sciences. SSS offers study programmes in a range of subjects at both undergraduate and graduate levels, from a BSocSci (Hons) in a Single or Double Major and MSc (by coursework) to MA (by research) and PhD.

SSS has around 1,700 undergraduates and close to 400 graduate students across our degree programmes.

Presently, SSS offers four subject majors at the undergraduate level—Economics, Psychology, Public Policy and Global Affairs, and Sociology. Undergraduates also have the opportunity to choose interdisciplinary studies in Economics and Data Science, or double majors such as Economics and Media Analytics, Economics & Public Policy and Global Affairs. Meanwhile, at the graduate level, SSS offers PhD and MA programmes in all four subject majors as well as MSc in Applied Economics and Applied Gerontology.

In line with the strategic goals of NTU 2025 and the evolving concerns of human society, the School has formed four interdisciplinary research clusters—Aging, Inclusion and Healthcare; Cognitive and Behavioural Science; Environment and Sustainability; and Policy and Society. In addition, we have the Economic Growth Centre (EGC) that supports research by the Economics division.
