The undergraduate GenNEXT degree is a student-centric approach to education and lays the foundation for life-long learning. It seeks to equip students with essential skills of critical thinking,reasoning, communication, quantitative analysis and with both a national and global perspective. Three principles embedded in all the GenNEXT modules are entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation, and environmental awareness.
The GenNEXT curriculum is designed to enhance students’ knowledge and competency in specific disciplinary areas as well as broad-based knowledge outside their major discipline, providing students with flexibility in choice of careers. Thus, GenNEXT involves a balanced combination of depth and breadth. By the end of the degree, a student should know a disciplinary area well, its main ideas, methodology and current questions and issues. At the same time, he/she should have broad exposure to knowledge beyond a student’s disciplinary specialisation.
