School of Humanities (SoH) began offering the Second Major programme in 2005. The objective of the Second Major is to allow SoH students to graduate with a second Major in another discipline offered by the School. SoH students can also choose a second major from the School of Social Sciences, School of Communication and Information and Art History offered by the School of Art, Design and Media.
As in the Minor programmes, the second major provides SoH students with breadth of exposure. However, the second major is also designed to provide greater depth of study in an additional discipline. Students will graduate with a BA Honours degree in their First Major upon satisfying the academic requirements of the School. The Second Major will be shown on the final transcript.
