Joint honours degrees provide you with the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that really interest you. This gives you the opportunity to study your two favourite subjects within one degree course.
Our course combinations are designed so that what you learn in one subject will complement and enhance what you learn in the other. In your final year you can choose either to split your time evenly between your two subjects, or to specialise in one.
If you are concerned about pressing global crises (such as food security, environmental change, conflict, inequality) and the everyday experiences of people living in globalised communities then this is the perfect course for you.
The need for understanding how our world is connected, but also divided, has never been greater. Cultural and social crises are impacting on everyday experience, while work, leisure and identity can only be understood through the global structures that mediate them.
This unique course will allow you not only to understand and analyse global trends and tensions, but to engage with the world as a global citizen and professional. You will be able to build a flexible personalised course of study by selecting options taught by experts in the field from across the Humanities.
In combination with another Joint Honours subject, Global Studies provides students with an innovative opportunity to build contemporary world relevance into their degree.
This popular degree combines theoretical approaches to media with opportunities to learn practical media skills. You will learn from industry professionals and explore all aspects of media cultures, from social networking sites and lifestyle magazines to anti-globalisation movements and computer gaming.
This course is taught by a team of eminent researchers. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF, 2014) 70% of our Communication, Culture and Media research was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent. For you, this means that the course is informed by the latest thinking and you will learn from people with a real passion for their subject.

How will I learn?
Each year students choose a range of core and optional modules from the lists above. The first year is normally divided equally between the two joint honours subjects but at the end of Year One, students have the opportunity to select between an equally weighted joint honours course and a more specialised pathway depending on their interests.
Teaching principally takes place through a combination of:
lectures (where tutors introduce the key ideas)
seminars (organised on the basis of smaller group discussion of those ideas).
