Dear Students,

Seek advice from Temporary Academic Adviser on Major Minor Decisions

Can you imagine this semester is already half over? If you are a Year 1 student, you may be planning to declare major/ minor after the summer break; if you are in Year 2 or above, you may be reviewing your major/minor or possibly changing it in the next add/drop period. Whatever your plan is, find out more about your potential major/minor subjects from Our Temporary Academic Advisers (TAAs).


  • TAAs are teachers who can answer your questions about a particular subject in your major/minor exploration.
  • Currently there are about 100 TAAs from programmes that offer major/minor options.
  • Whether you are a home or non-home student of that Faculty, you can request to meet with a TAA for each subject any time on SIS under “Self-service”. Click for more information.

Remember, when assessing the suitability of a major/minor, there are many aspects that you may discuss with your TAA. Do you know what factors senior students considered in deciding their study choices? Take one minute to watch the video now:
