3.4.1    Double Major and Major-Minor Combinations

  Home / NUS Bulletin AY2020/21 / Faculty of Science / Undergraduate Education / Multidisciplinary Opportunities / Double Major and Major-Minor Combinations

While the minimum requirement for graduation is at least one major, students may read double majors or major-minor combinations during their candidature if they wish to enhance and broaden their undergraduate education.

Up to 8MC of the Minor may be double counted with the Primary Major or Second Major requirements, and up to 16 MCs of the Second Major may be double counted with the Primary Major requirements. Please refer to the following Faculty of Science website for the complete double-counting rules: https://www.science.nus.edu.sg/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/UG_FAQ-1.pdf [Please refer to both 1. What is double-counting and when is double counting allowed? and 2. Is Faculty requirement part of the double counting policy?].    

For certain major-minor combinations, departments have specified the number as well as the type of modules that can be read to fulfil two sets of requirements simultaneously (refer to Table 1).

Table 1: Major-Minor Combinations

Major-Minor Combinations Restrictions
Major in Quantitative Finance and Minor in Statistics While MA1102R, ST2131/MA2216, ST3131 are in both sets of Major and minor requirements, only 8MCs are allowed to be double counted towards both sets of requirements. Thus, you must read 1 additional ST module at level 3000 and above, and which is not overlapping with any other modules used in order to fulfil both the major and minor requirements

Major in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics and Minor in Statistics Only MA1102R and ST2131/MA2216 can be used to satisfy both major and minor requirements.

For certain major-second major combinations, departments have specified the number as well as the type of modules that can be read to fulfil two sets of requirements simultaneously:

Students reading a double major combination involving a Primary major in Statistics and Second Major in Mathematics may refer to the FAQ at http://ww1.math.nus.edu.sg/undergraduates.aspx?f=UP-MA2#scrolltop for more information.

Students reading a double major combination involving a primary major in Applied Mathematics/Mathematics/Quantitative Finance and a second major in Statistics should refer to the FAQ at https://www.stat.nus.edu.sg/index.php/current-students/undergraduate-programme/faq for more information.

For prohibited double major and major-minor combinations, students should refer to departments offering the minor/major programmes.
