what Is the gsp?
the 10-week graduate studIes program (gsp) Is desIgned for leaders who want to buIld InnovatIve solutIons to global grand challenges.
Singularity University asks participants to develop accelerating technologies that can positively impact the lives of a billion people within 10 years. The GSP creates an unparalleled opportunity for participants to work together in international and interdisciplinary teams to address large-scale humanitarian challenges. Participants in this unique educational environment learn from each other, and from renowned experts in multiple disparate fields, in order to understand and apply these transformative, exponential technologies.
The Graduate Studies Program is held for 10 weeks in June- August each year.

Learning by Doing
Participants contribute their domain expertise, leadership skills and passion for working on the world’s most pressing problems.
su amplIfIes these wIth nearly 400 hours of academIc actIvItIes: classes, hands-on workshops, sIte vIsIts, and collaboratIve teamwork actIvItIes.
In addItIon to these scheduled events, students lead theIr own self-organIzed sessIons, trIps, and workshops.
A program with this level of intensity requires integrated academic activities that provide detailed understanding of a topic, as well as tools for upcoming work. For example, a GSP13 Robotics workshop covers core curriculum using brainstorming and prototyping activities that directly apply to the Team Projects; a GSP13 lecture on a researcher’s global health impact are followed by technology lectures that expand on the background tools and technologies that make that researcher’s work possible. The program also requires a balanced, holistic approach to health and well-being. Our program integrates fun events, networking time, local trips, and a wellness program with options for healthy eating, exercise, stress-reducing meditation, sports and games.
