Foundation Modules

Nurture a solid series of skills that will equip students for the interdisciplinary work they will encounter in the subsequent tiers.


Inquiry Modules

Focus on further developing and expanding the skills and ideas encountered in the Foundation modules. Encourage students to generate new and innovative ways to look deeply at complex issues and solve problems.


Reflection Module

Builds upon both the broadening of inquiry and the disciplinary knowledge that students have gained within their own majors, by having students reflect on their processes in a single seminar-style module.


Academic Structure

USP places strong emphasis on designing a curriculum that is truly interdisciplinary for its students from multidisciplinary backgrounds. A USP student reads 12 USP modules in four years, and these modules are taken in three structured tiers, namely Foundation Tier, Inquiry Tier and Reflection Tier.
