Minor Programmes

​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 his 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 issued.

Important Notes

  • Students have to read minor courses as Unrestricted Electives and the academic units earned will count towards the students’ academic unit requirements for Unrestricted Electives. A minor course that is NOT read as Unrestricted Electives* (e.g. read as Major Prescribed Electives or GER Prescribed Electives) cannot be counted again towards fulfilling the minor.

    *Exception for the minors in Art History, Business, Communication Studies, Energy, Environmental Humanities, Environmental Sustainability, Finance, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Risk Management and Insurance
    Students who are admitted in AY2013 and onwards are allowed to count ONE (1) GER Core or GER Prescribed Elective or USP core or USP Elective towards the minor requirement IF the said GER Core/GER Prescribed Elective/USP core/USP Elective is also in the minor's list of courses. The remaining courses must be Unrestricted Electives.

  • A course cannot be counted towards the requirements of two minors (unless otherwise stated).
  • To be awarded a minor, students must not opt for these courses to be graded Satisfactory (S)/Un-Satisfactory (U).
  • NIE students have to consult the NIE Office of Academic Administration and Services (OAAS) if they have intention to pursue a minor.
