Second Major in Sociology

The School of Social Sciences (SSS) offers Second Major programmes to its students and its sister schools. Students who qualify will have the option of pursuing a second major within SSS (Economics, Public Policy and Global Affairs, Psychology or Sociology), or a second major within SoH (Chinese, English, History, Linguistics and Multilingual Studies, or Philosophy) or a second major in Communication Studies offered by the School of Communication and Information.

The Second Major programme will allow SSS students to take advantage of the synergies between two disciplines – for example, English Literature and Communication Studies; Psychology and Sociology; or Economics and Business. It is an excellent programme for students who can cope with the rigour. Students can go beyond their narrow specialisation and acquire the depth and breadth of a multi-disciplinary education. Graduates with such training are becoming increasingly attractive to employers.

Second Major students will graduate with a BSocSci (Hons) degree in their First Major. The Second Major will be shown on the final transcript.

To read Sociology as the second Major, students must have a GPA of 4.0 and above at the point of application.
