Undergraduate Admissions

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 their majors in both Linguistics and Multilingual Studies and Psychology, benefiting from the expertise and resources of both the School of Humanities(SoH) and the School of Social Sciences(SSS).

The Psychology curriculum offers rigorous training to students in understanding human emotion, cognition and behaviours using scientific methods. The goals of our program focus on fostering critical thinking, methodological and quantitative reasoning skills. Students will complete a wide range of courses including but not limited to abnormal psychology, biopsychology, clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience, developmental psychology, personality and social psychology.

The Linguistics and Multilingual Studies curriculum allows students to explore the many interesting facets of language and communication, from the properties of speech sounds to grammatical and discourse structure, from children's language development to communication in bilingual and multilingual societies.
