The course structure is designed to meet the honours requirements of the two disciplines in 5 years with at least 200 Modular Credits (MCs). In the case of single honours requirements (i.e., Honours in Information Systems discipline and bachelor without honours in Economics discipline), the course structure is designed for students to complete in 4.5 years with a total of 180 Modular Credits (MCs).

Students may pursue either a double honours or a single honours programme.

Students pursuing DDP with single honours (i.e., Honours in Information Systems and Bachelor without honours in Economics) can choose one of the following: (1) Honours dissertation (for Information Systems), or (2) Industry Internship Programme (for Information Systems). Students aiming for Honours (Highest Distinction) in Information Systems are required to select option (1). Regardless of the choice, students are highly encouraged to select a dissertation topic or internship assignment that covers both economics and information systems domain.

 

Notes:

EC1301 can only be used to satisfy the UE requirement but not the Social Sciences exposure requirements. Hence, DDP students have to read another Social Sciences exposure module (such as NM1101E or PL110E or SC1101E) to complete the FASS’ faculty core requirements.
