As junior college drew to an end, we students were faced with the difficult decision of deciding what we wanted to pursue, what subject best suited us and what passions we would, by extension, have to set aside. Coming from an art’s school background, I had wanted to discover more about art and its history, to approach it with an academic standpoint. However, I did not want to neglect my love of literature, a subject that brought me so much joy to study.

So when I heard about NTU’s Double Major English Literature and Art History programme, I immediately knew that this was the course for me. The DM programme provided me with the opportunity to continue studying the literature I so loved while pursuing art history, to have a foot in the familiar and the unknown.
