To Students Who Want to Study Subjects
Other Than Their Major

When students at HBNU become sophomores, they can choose between major courses and Multi-major courses. “Multi-majors” are courses in which each student completes an additional major as well as their chosen major. HBNU has 6 kinds of Multi-major courses which you will be able to understand after reading this article.
First, is the most commonly known “Double Major.” A Double Major is a major where students additionally complete a different subject major, other than their main department major. Double Majors can be recognized for individual degrees.
Second, is the “Linked Major.” This is a major established by two or more departments. There are no classes currently underway, but they are planned to be held from the second semester, after receiving applications during this summer vacation.
Third, is the “Student Design Major.” This is a major in which students combine and organize their own curriculum, and choose specific subjects that they would like to study.
Fourth, is a “Minor.” This course consists of other subjects from other departments, including undergraduate departments, which are not officially recognised in a final degree. They are completed with a specified grade or higher. One of the big differences between a Minor and a Double Major is that, unlike being recognized as two main majors, a Minor is recognized as being part of the chosen Major.
Fifth, is “Major in Industry-Academic Relations.” This course is organized to educate students in practical learning which can be used in a working environment. This could benefit students entering a workplace after graduation.
Finally, a “Convergence Major.” Convergence Majors are courses designed to diversify employment opportunities. These courses include a tailored program where students and companies can correspond with one another.
