A joint honours degree is perfect for you if you want to study more than one subject. You can combine Media Studies with one or two other joint honours courses that are offered at our Derby Campus to create your own joint honours degree. You will be taught with students studying , but the modules you'll study will depend on how you decide to combine the subjects you choose.

There is a wide range of exciting and interesting law options for you to choose from depending on your interest in either private or public law, allowing you flexibility in selecting options which compliment the other subjects you will study alongside Law.
For example, if you are studying Law and Criminology you may wish to study choose Criminal Law, Law of Evidence and Police Powers and the Law, for those with and interest in crime.
