Junior Seminars bring freshmen together to explore interesting and diverse topics in a highly interactive environment. Students work collaboratively and tackle issues from a multidisciplinary perspective.
Senior Seminars are designed to give students an informed perspective of issues that are important to society in Singapore and Asia, help them think critically and challenge them to make a difference.
Ideas & Exposition I (IEM1)
Ideas & Exposition modules are offered by the Centre for English Language Communication’s Writing Unit. These help students to develop core strategies that underlie successful scholarly writing in the humanities, social sciences, life sciences, physical sciences and mathematics.
The I&E I modules help students to produce expository writing that readers will recognize as increasing their understanding of a given topic while the I&E II modules will help students learn and apply five core strategies that underlie successful scholarly research and writing.
Ideas & Exposition 2 (IEM2)
Ideas and Exposition 2 modules are the second in a sequence (following Ideas & Exposition 1). Similar to I&E1 modules, I&E2 modules help students improve their academic writing by investigating diverse scholarly perspectives on a specific course topic.
The goal of the course is to use research-based writing on that topic as a tool to develop students’ rhetorical awareness, habits of inquiry, and writing competencies.
