3.3.6    Minor Pogrammes

A Minor programme is a coherent course of study. It provides significant depth, but unlike a specialisation, it does so in an additional area outside of the Major. By doing this, it contributes to the breadth of learning envisaged for undergraduate education.

The modular credit (MC) requirement for a Minor programme should be at least 24 MCs.  Up to 8 MCs (out of 24 MCs) may be used to meet the requirements for both the Minor  and a Major or another Minor, subject to the agreement of the particular department(s), faculty/faculties or programme(s) hosting the Minor.

At least 12 MCs (out of 24 MCs) for any Minor programme must be taken from outside the entire set of modules that are listed for the major(s)/another minor that the student is taking/has taken.

The MCs under Unrestricted Elective module requirements can be used to satisfy the Minor programme requirements.

For students matriculated in AY2014-15 and after: A minimum 16 MCs of the Minor requirements must be earned from modules read in NUS, unless indicated otherwise by Faculties/Departments for specific minors. Modules read at NUS include all modules taught, co-taught, supervised or co-supervised by one or more NUS faculty members. These would consist of graded modules with assigned grade points, or modules with an ‘S’ or ‘CS’ grade. The other 8 MCs may be earned through credit transfers, advanced placement and exemptions, provided these MCs are earned from modules deemed relevant to the particular Minor programme.

The Minor programme(s) will be reflected in the student’s transcript. Computing students are free to read any minor, subject to availability.  Examples include Mathematics, Interactive Media Development, and Entrepreneurship minors.

The Minor programme(s) will be reflected in the student’s transcript.

The following three minors are offered to students outside the School of Computing:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Business Analytics
  • Computer Science
  • Information Security
  • Information Systems
