Double Major Programmes

Double majors are conceived as an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge and capacities with a significant degree of depth by pursing a second major alongside their primary major. In collaboration with other faculties within NUS, FASS offers direct admission for the following structured double major programmes for suitably qualified FASS students. Alternatively, students may still apply to read a second major after being admitted.

As these are structured progammes, modules have been identified to allow for double-counting between the two majors. This means that students would be able to plan their modules to complete their Honours degree requirements and the second major requirements, within the four years, without having to extend their candidature. Alternatively, students may still apply to read second major after being admitted.  All FASS subjects (except Global Studies) are available as second major options, and FASS students are welcome to double-major in subjects offered by other Faculties as well.

*Note: As the double-major programme ultimately culminates in a single degree, the first major listed in the table will be your primary major (i.e. the one printed on your degree scroll). For example, you may pursue an Honours degree in Psychology with a second major in Social Work, or vice versa. You cannot be enrolled in the Honours Programme for your second major. It will, however, be recorded in your transcript.

# Note: Psychology major declaration: Only students who have passed PL1101E and PL2131 with at least a B- (B minus) grade, are eligible to declare Psychology to be their major.
