Major Minor Week 2019

Dear Students,

Choosing a major and / or a minor is no doubt one of the important academic decisions you make in your university education. With the Add / Drop period of the second semester coming soon, it is time for actions. If you are a first-year student, it is timely to explore the wide spectrum of options open to you and select courses of your potential major/minor. If you are a non-final year student, you should also decide and declare your major / minor for a smooth progression in your studies.

Organized by AAO, the “Major Minor Week” provides a platform for you to explore your major minor options effectively. During the week-long event, you can learn more by attending talk, meeting senior students, speaking to the Faculty staff and getting personal advice from AAO advisers.
