Double Major is a single degree programme, in
which a student satisfies the requirements of two
majors. The second major is not to be taken to the
same level of intensity as the primary major, and
it may be taken in the same Faculty/School or from
a different Faculty/School. Double Majors offer
students the opportunity to broaden their
knowledge and capacities with significant depth
through the pursuit of a second major alongside
the primary major. The second major will be a
A second major will consist of at least 48 MCs of modules of which:
(A) University Level Requirements
Students need to satisfy one set of Singapore Studies (SS) and General Education (GE) requirements only. The prevailing rules relating to satisfying GE requirements in the different subject groups apply. Students will be required to take breadth modules, but modules in the second major from outside the Faculty/School of the primary major can be counted towards these requirements.
(B) Faculty Requirements
Students need to fulfill the faculty requirements of the primary major.
(C) Major Requirements
Students are required to completely fulfill all the requirements of the primary major and the second major. Up to eight MCs of the modules in the second major can be used to double count towards either the Faculty, Primary Major or Minor requirements.
Students may not need to take Unrestricted Elective (UE) Modules if the ULR and two majors add up to 160MCs or more. USP students must satisfy the prevailing USP requirements. Advanced Modules can only be drawn from the primary major. The prevailing rules/policy concerning S/U modules will apply for Double Major students.
(D) Computation of Cumulative Average Points (CAP)
Since students will graduate with only one degree under Double Major Programmes, there will be a common CAP for both majors.
(E) Minimum MC Requirements for Double Majors
The minimum MC requirements for Double Majors are as follows:
|Single Degree, Double Major Programmes||Minimum MC requirement|
If the above minimum requirements are achieved, it would be possible to complete a Double Major with Honours in one subject within four years. The actual total MCs will depend on the requirements of the second major.
(F) Residency Requirement
The residency requirement is 50% of the minimum required MCs for the Double Major programme or 80 MCs, whichever is the higher.
(G) Maximum Period of Candidature
The maximum period of candidature for a Double Major is the same as that for a single major under the same degree.
A Double Major
student will only be eligible for award of medals
and prizes associated with the primary major
unless the medal/prize is to be awarded for best
