What is Joint Honours?

A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.

Creative Writing

This Joint Honours course degree offers you the opportunity to learn from award winning internationally respected novelists, short story writers, poets, songwriters and performers, scriptwriters, editors, publishers, and new media writers. You'll mainly focus on practical work, utilising key examples from the greatest writers to inform your work. The sessions are run by enthusiastic writers in supportive relatively small groups. Through a combination of creative workshops, seminars and tutorials, you will be able to gain skills and confidence.

Third World Development

You'll look at patterns of political, socio-economic and environmental change in less developed countries. And you'll get the opportunity to explore major themes, such as the development gap between rich and poor countries, social justice, women's rights, globalisation, democratisation and environmental impacts. Using a range of modern and historical materials, you'll also consider areas such as economics, sociology, history and geography.
