Cross Disciplinary Subjects (CDS)

In our effort to provide you with a holistic education at TP, you will study Cross-Disciplinary Subjects (CDS), which go beyond your diploma specialisation. They include subjects in the arts, humanities and social sciences, as well as those that promote entrepreneurship, character building and a global perspective. The CDS are intended to ensure our students have a broad-based education when they graduate.

TP's academic schools and centres offer a wide range of interesting CDS that will give you an edge in a world of work that increasingly bridges academic disciplines.

CDS are accorded 3 credit units. Do note that the final list of subjects to be offered in each semester is subject to change and that not all subjects will be offered in every semester.
