Humanities Programme@NJC

The NJC Humanities Programme is a stretch programme for students passionate about the Humanities and consists of:

  • Advanced Humanities (AH), a 2 year programme in JH3-4 and
  • The Humanities Integrated Programme (HIP), a 15-month programme in SH1-2. 

 We seek to nurture inspirational Humanities thought leaders who are proactive in serving the community.

The Humanities Programme provides opportunities for students to:

  • Explore an interdisciplinary humanities curriculum, with humanities research elements;
  • Enrich themselves through interaction with experts and peers at external conferences, workshops, competitions, internships, international exchanges and learning journeys, as participants, presenters and co-designers; and
  • Empower themselves through collaborative leadership development opportunities and knowledge-based service projects.
