About Joint Honours degrees

Choosing just one subject to study at university can be a challenge! If you’re stuck weighing up different subjects, a joint honours course could be the ideal solution,

Our joint honours degrees are designed to ensure that the things you learn in one subject enhance the other, meaning you’ll get the best of both worlds – two independent disciplines, with plenty of complementary learning on both sides.

Create your degree from a range of humanities subjects, from classics such as English and History, to Communications and Film & TV. They’re an informed mix of academic grounding and elements of professional skills development - including work placement, company projects or volunteering.

You’ll be joining a passionate community of students, historians, linguists, poets, writers, researchers and seasoned industry experts – a truly creative hub of shared learning and experience.
