Can I take up a Second Major?
Yes, you can pursue a Second Major. However, you must have a CGPA of 4.0 at the end of Year 1, and meet basic requirements of Second Major. You can read another Major offered by SSS, or any Major offered by another School within College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CoHASS).
||Do I have to pay additional fees if I am enrolled in the Second Major programme?|
No, you do not have to pay additional fees if you complete your degree within four years.
How does a Second Major differ from a Double Major or Double Degree?
A Second Major is single degree programme where an additional major read after the First Year of study. Students will graduate with a BSocSci in their First Major. The Second Major will be shown on the final transcript, and students will receive an additional certificate.
A Double Major is also a single degree programme, but an undergraduate declares two majors at the point of entry to NTU, instead of one. Both are usually four years of study in NTU.
For a Double Degree programme, a student will receive two bachelor’s degrees.
Can I complete my BSocSci in less than four years?
Yes, you can. The NTU degree programme is designed as a four-year one. However, it allows well-prepared students to take more courses during the semester and between semesters so that they can complete their degree, with honours, in a minimum of 3.5 years.
Successful Polytechnic applicants will be exempted certain courses that will be confirmed before the start of their first semester.
