A joint honours programme is for you if:
Perhaps the greatest benefit from graduating with a joint honours degree is that it boosts your employment prospects. This is because most joint honours programmes equip you for further work or study in either subject area.
Joint honours programmes are carefully designed so that you cover the essentials of both subjects. You study the same total number of modules as other students, but these are split across your two subjects.
Each joint honours programme has a lead department, which manages the degree. You will be equally at home in both departments but you will have a single personal tutor who will support you through the degree. You will be taught alongside single honours students.
You will be able to choose optional modules from both subjects, make friends with students in both departments and take up extra-curricular activities relating to both subjects. Joint degrees provide a wealth of opportunities.
About 18% of first degrees awarded in the UK are joint honours degrees (sometimes called combined degrees)
