Minor in Language Studies

Students from cohort 2017 onwards are eligible for Minor in Language Studies. To graduate with a Minor in Language Studies, students have to accumulate at least 24 Modular Credits.

Students who declare the Minor in Language Studies can choose one of the following options:

  1. 6 CLS language modules of the same language (e.g. all the levels from the first to the sixth level language modules), OR
  2. 5 CLS language modules of the same language, including the sixth level language module, and 1 recognized modules for that language track, OR
  3. 4 CLS language modules of the same language, including the sixth level language module, and 2 recognized modules for that language track.

Students can start to declare for Minor in Language Studies in AY2018-2019 semester 2.

Note:

  • In order to take the lowest level 1000 CLS language module, the student must not have any prior knowledge of the language concerned.
  • Students who have prior knowledge in a language and have been placed directly in the fourth language module or any higher level will not be able to minor in that language as they will not be able to obtain the required number of modular credits from eligible language modules in that language. Such students are encouraged to work towards a minor in another language offered by the Centre.
  • Department Exchange Module will not be counted towards fulfillment of Minor in Language Studies.
