Double Major Curriculum Structure

The core courses equip students with a firm foundation in their two Majors. Students can then choose from a range of prescribed electives in their interests.

From AY2021 onwards, to graduate, students must complete three (3) categories of requirement, totalling at least 138 Academic Units (AUs):

*Students who are eligible to do the FYP will be strongly encouraged to do an inter-major FYP.  Students whose GPAs fall in a certain range can choose whether or not to do the FYP. Students who do not do the FYP must clear 8 AUs of PEs (two 4000-level courses, one from each discipline) within the double major.

Curated Double Major Combinations

All 16 academic combinations offer exciting multidisciplinary approaches and bring different disciplines into conversation with each other. Many of these disciplines already exist as single major degrees in NTU’s progressive College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, while several new emphases are being introduced. For example, Art History will be offered for the very first time as a major in a Singapore university and will make a valuable contribution to Singapore’s exciting Arts and Culture environment, while Media Analytics, a cutting-edge new major, offered by The Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, will enable students to understand, and engage with, the shifting social media landscape, big data, and digital media, and it will develop students who have high-level competency in evaluating organisational opportunities and risks.

All of these combinations will focus on developing genuine academic depth in two disciplines and will encourage students to develop a truly multidisciplinary outlook and a set of widely usable skills after graduation.
