Major Minor Week 2019: January 16 – 23, 2019

Choosing a major and / or a minor is no doubt one of the important academic decisions you make in your university education. 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 from your interested Faculties, speaking to the Faculty staff on specific requirements of your interested subjects and getting personal advice from AAO advisers to plan your studies.

With a better understanding of different major and minor subjects, you can declare (or change) your major minor selection in SIS during the semester 2 ADD/DROP period, or change your course enrolment if you wish to get a taste of a potential major or minor.
