Second Majors

Students can choose to pursue a second Major in another discipline offered either by:

- their home School, or
​- by another School within the College. 

The second major provides students with breadth of exposure, and is also designed to provide greater depth of study in an additional discipline. Students will graduate with a degree in their First Major upon satisfying the academic requirements of the School. The Second Major will be shown on the final transcript, and students will receive an additional certificate.

Students will need to obtain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 4.0 in their first year at university to be eligible to take up a second major.
