Joint degrees allow you to study two complementary subjects as part of a single undergraduate qualification.
At Reading, we offer a wide range of joint degrees, and your time will be split between the subjects according to the type of course:
- Joint honours degrees are designed so that you study two subjects equally. For example, on our BA Ancient History and Archaeology degree, you would spend half of your time studying ancient history and the other half studying archaeology.
- Combined honours degrees are designed so that you can study the core modules from both subject areas, but focus on one subject area in greater detail. For example, on our BA English Literature with Creative Writing degree, you would take modules in both subject areas, but a higher proportion would be in English literature.
