The Double Major Programme is a four-year direct honours degree programme. Undergraduate students will read two majors chosen from among the disciplinary strengths of the four schools in the College, namely, the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM), the School of Humanities (SoH), the School of Social Sciences (SSS), and the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI).
 
Unlike the existing single discipline-based degrees, this degree will feature two distinct majors within an innovative new structure. As such this is a fully conceived double-disciplinary degree. Students will be admitted into this Double Major degree programme at the point of entry to NTU, and declare their two majors at this point.
During this four-year degree programme, undergraduates will read both Art History and English literature, benefiting from the expertise and resources of both the School of Humanities (SoH) and the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM).
 
For English Literature, students will focus both on traditional historical periods and on contemporary innovative approaches to the subject. Specialisations offered include All the major literary periods, Singaporean and Asian literatures, critical and literary theory, cultural studies, film studies, drama, postmodernism, and gender studies.
 
The Art History curriculum aims to equip students with a thorough knowledge and critical awareness of the global histories of art, culture and heritage, which will be taught through lectures, seminars and practical projects. Students will be trained in the rigours and methods of researching and writing about art, including specialisations in Global Art History, Asian Art History, Museums, Heritage, Curating and Contemporary Art and Theory. They will also benefit from ADM’s relationship to professional arts spaces such as the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA).
