NUS, being a comprehensive university, offers a wide range of possibilities beyond FASS. The undergraduate curriculum is structured to enable FASS students to acquire breadth by reading modules from other NUS faculties and schools. Graduate students can also read some modules from other NUS departments that complement their area of specialization.
Cross Faculty Minors
Besides minors offered by FASS, student can also register for cross faculty minors offered by other NUS faculties and schools. The modules read for these minors can be accommodated within the FASS curriculum structure and will be recorded in the transcript. Some minors are open while others are restricted where students are enrolled on a competitive basis. For more information on the various minors available, please visit the individual Faculty or School’s website.
