A Minor programme is a coherent course of study providing significant depth in a certain area outside that of the Major, within or outside the student's department.The modular credit (MC) requirement for a Minor programme should be at least 24MCs, of which up to 8MCs may be used to meet the requirements for both the Minor and a Major or another Minor subject to the agreement of the particular department(s), faculty/faculties or programme(s) hosting the Minor.

In the case of a Minor programme co-hosted by two departments, at least 12 MCs must be from outside the student's Major department and in the case of a Minor programme hosted by one department, at least 16 MCs must be from outside the student's Major department.

Students admitted in AY2014-2015 and before may use the MCs under the Breadth and Unrestricted Elective module requirements to satisfy the Minor programme requirements. GEMs may not be used to satisfy the Minor requirements except where the GEM module(s) is/are within the list of module(s) approved for the Minor. Under the GEMs policy, GEMs may not be used to satisfy the Minor requirements. Students have to register for the module cross-listed under its normal department code to satisfy the Minor requirement.

Minimum MC Requirements for Minor

For students admitted from AY2014/2015 onwards:
A minimum 16 MCs of the Minor requirements must be earned from modules read in NUS, unless indicated otherwise by Faculties/Departments for specific minors. Modules read at NUS include all modules taught, co-taught, supervised or co-supervised by one or more NUS faculty members. These would consist of graded modules with assigned grade points, or modules with an ‘S' or ‘CS' grade. The other 8 MCs may be earned through credit transfers, advanced placement and exemptions, provided these MCs are earned from modules deemed relevant to the particular Minor programme.

For students admitted before AY2014/2015:
A minimum 16 MCs of the Minor requirements must be graded and factored into the CAP. The other 8 MCs may be earned through credit transfers, advanced placement, exemptions and CS-graded modules.

The Minor programme(s) will be reflected in the student's transcript.
