For the pioneer cohort, HASS will offer the following six combinations:
- Economics & Media Analytics
- Economics & Psychology
- Economics & Public Policy and Global Affairs
- English Literature & Art History
- Psychology & Linguistics and Multilingual Studies
- Psychology & Media Analytics
All six academic combinations offer exciting multidisciplinary approaches and bring different disciplines into conversation with each other. Many of these disciplines already exist as single major degrees in NTU’s progressive College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, while several new emphases are being introduced. For example, Art History will be offered for the very first time as a major in a Singapore university and will make a valuable contribution to Singapore’s exciting Arts and Culture environment, while Media Analytics, a cutting-edge new major, offered by The Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, will enable students to understand, and engage with, the shifting social media landscape, big data, and digital media, and it will develop students who have high-level competency in evaluating organisational opportunities and risks.
All of these combinations will focus on developing genuine academic depth in two disciplines and will encourage students to develop a truly multidisciplinary outlook and a set of widely usable skills after graduation.
