Overview

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.

Global Studies

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 Philosophy, Global Studies provides students with an innovative opportunity to build contemporary world relevance into their degree.

TESOL

This course will help you to learn how to plan and deliver English language lessons. These skills will be learned in interactive workshop classes taught by experienced languages teacher trainers using current language teaching methods. You will have the opportunity to practice and gain vital experience through teaching in the classroom.

On this course you will explore features of the English language and linguistics and will shadow a foreign learner of English. You will also have the opportunity to take the Teaching Knowledge Test, a globally recognised qualification for English Language Teachers (subject to an exam fee).

Spend a year abroad

Students studying a language can choose to spend a year abroad, allowing you to increase your foreign language fluency and understanding of other cultures. You will come away with an experience that will give you a real advantage when competing for the best jobs.

Your optional Year Abroad takes place during Year Three when you can spend time working or studying at one of our partner universities.

Year Two – extra opportunities
Our flexible curriculum has been designed to create some amazing opportunities for you. Your second year of study is divided into two semesters that enables you to take part in the following optional opportunities:

International exchange – Experience other cultures, travel the globe and open your eyes to a world of opportunities. Our exchange partnership with a number of international universities enables you to live and study in another country in your second year. Watch our video to find out more.
Work placements – Gain valuable work experience that will impress employers and help you get ahead in your chosen career. Boost your employability by taking a credit-bearing work placement as part of your degree rather than a sandwich year.
