|What is the difference between minor/ second major/ double major?|
Minor programmes equip students with multiple skills and
broader knowledge, beyond what their major disciplines may provide.
More than 40 minors are available. Students will not be
offered a minor in the same field as their major (single degree, double degree
or double major programme). Students intending to pursue a minor are to
indicate their intention and when they have fulfilled the minor requirements,
they are to file for the award of the minor.
The award of minor will be reflected in a graduate’s
transcript but not his degree certificate. No additional certificate will be
Here are the list of Minors offered in NTU.
Students can choose to pursue a second Major in another
discipline offered either by:
- their home School, or
- by another School within the College.
The second major provides students with breadth of exposure,
and is also designed to provide greater depth of study in an additional discipline.
Students will graduate with a degree in their First Major upon satisfying the
academic requirements of the School. The Second Major will be shown on the
final transcript, and students will receive an additional certificate.
Students will need to obtain a minimum cumulative grade
point average of 4.0 in their first year at university to be eligible to take
up a second major.
Here are the list of Second Major offered by the College of Humanities,
Arts, and Social Sciences.
The Double Major Programme is a four-year direct honours
degree programme. Undergraduate students will read two majors chosen from among
the disciplinary strengths of the four schools in the College, namely, the
School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), the School of Humanities (SoH), the
School of Social Sciences (SSS), and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication
and Information (WKWSCI).
Unlike the existing single discipline-based degrees, this
degree will feature two distinct majors within an innovative new structure. As
such this is a fully conceived double-disciplinary degree. Each major will
represent approximately 42% of the overall degree, with the remaining 16%
reserved for General Education courses. Students will be admitted into this new
Double Major degree programme at the point of entry to NTU, and declare their
two majors at this point.
The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences offers
the following six combinations of Double Major Programme:
- Economics and Media Analytics
- Economics and Psychology
- Economics and Public Policy and Global Affairs
- English Literature and Art History
- Psychology and Linguistics and Multilingual Studies
