The College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) introduces a new Double Major Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Academic Year 2016.

In this four-year degree programme, undergraduate students will each 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, the new BA degree will feature two distinct majors within an innovative new degree structure. This honours degree involves full equal pairings of two disciplines in several mutually-beneficial combinations. Leveraging the stimulating intellectual environments in the four schools. Students will be admitted into this new Double Major degree programme at the point of entry to NTU, and declare their two majors at this point.

The School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) degree programmes are deeply grounded in a studio-based learning model. The School blends the best of multiple worlds: a rigorous intellectual and conceptual development, western studio practices and the superb craft of Asian traditions.
