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.

English

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.

Theatre Studies

This course is taught by practising professional artists and active researchers with expertise in their own specialist fields. We will encourage you to explore the relationship between drama, theatre and performance and consider Theatre Studies from many different perspectives. You will encounter a wide variety of performance practice, as well as the theoretical concerns related to that practice. And you will connect to the practices at Derby Theatre and have the opportunity to engage in projects and extra-curricular activities at the Theatre.
