English and Sociology
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.
You'll be taught in interactive and varied ways, with plenty of opportunity for you to discuss and debate ideas, so your course stays stimulating and thought-provoking. This will also help you develop expert communication skills, something that employers really value.
You'll be introduced to a range of literatures from the sixteenth century to present day; from Africa and the Caribbean, Asia, the USA and Europe. There's lots of choice, so you can focus on your own literary interests.
You'll study the behaviour of people in groups and of the relationship between these groups. This balance of studying major issues of concern for society and linking this to different concepts and theories, allows you to develop important skills personally and socially.
We use a wide range of teaching methods to make the subject alive and to help you achieve your full potential from lectures and seminars to film and video. You'll be assessed in different ways so that you have a chance to show your individual strengths and abilities. You'll also be supported throughout your studies by our teaching team who are experienced, approachable and easily contacted.
