For the double major programme, the weightage of both majors is equal. There is also the opportunity to do an interdisciplinary FYP during your final year. Both majors will be reflected in the same degree certificate.
For a second major programme, the weightage of the second major is lesser than your primary major. You will only be able to attempt the FYP of your primary major. The second major will be conferred in a separate degree certificate from your primary major.
Double Major Programme is a set of specially curated combinations. You can think of these as “set meals”. We have put together six different combinations of double major after consulting widely with the industry and other established universities to ensure the combinations’ relevance and academic rigor.
As of now CoHASS offers 16 double major combinations. For other combinations that are not offered, you may consider the second major track instead.
The AUs to fulfill for a single major programme is 125/128 AUs. The AUs to fulfill for a double major programme is 138 AUs. It is only 4 more modules, which is manageable over a 4-year candidature.
SINGLE MAJOR = 125/128 AUs
SECOND MAJOR = 135-138 AUs
DOUBLE MAJOR = 138 AUs
The double major is designed to complement each other. You will gain expertise in two academic areas and will encourage multidisciplinary educational and intellectual focus.
The employability is correspondingly higher too for future graduates of the double major programme. Students will be better prepared for an increasingly multi-focused Singapore, and international employment market.
Double Major students belong to both schools.
However, for the conferment of degree and other administrative matters, you will only have one academic school.
