First Major in Home Faculty
For those of you who need to select a primary major, explore the different options offered by your Faculty. It is important to keep an open mind! There might be some academic disciplines which you presently have no idea what they are about, but you may, after having a better understanding, eventually find them interesting. Discuss with your FAA if in doubt.

Second Major / Minors in Home or Non-home Faculties
You may also select second major / minor if you wish. HKU has a vast array of choices, across Faculties, for you. Here is the list. You may obtain more information of these majors and minors in AAO’s Major and Minor Fair, held jointly with different Faculties and CEDARS (Careers and Placement) in January each year. Stay tuned for the email announcement.

There are many ways to find out whether these subjects suit your interest/ abilities. You may sign up for one or two courses in year one, or request to talk with a Temporary Academic Adviser (TAA) who teaches the subject. Within 24 hours of your request, you will receive an email notification with information of the TAA assigned to you.
