Double Major Programmes

A Double Major is a single degree programme, in which a student satisfies the requirements of two Majors. It is conceived as an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge and capacities by pursuing a second Major alongside their primary Major. The Second Major affords a significant degree of depth, although its MC requirement is set below that of the Major. The Second Major is a non-Honours major. It may be taken in the same faculty that offers the Major or from a different Faculty. A Second Major consist of at least 48 MCs.

For students admitted prior to AY2014/15:

  • up to 8 MCs can be counted also towards the Faculty/Major/Minor requirements; and
  • at least 16 MCs must be at Level 3000.

For students admitted from AY2014/15 onwards:

  • up to 16 MCs can be counted also towards the Faculty/Major/Minor requirements; and
  • at least 16 MCs must be at Level 3000.

Students can be admitted to Double Major Programmes at the point of admission to NUS, or by applying to the relevant Faculties/Schools no later than the 5th semester of study. For a list of Double Major Programmes available at the point of admission, please refer to the website of the Office of Admissions.
