Course Summary

Our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences offers students a flexible and exciting way to study through its innovative Honours Select degree programme. Honours Select gives you the opportunity to design a degree that’s tailored to suit your specific interests, academic strengths and career aspirations. You can choose to study one or two subjects from a wide selection, and decide for yourself how much weight each subject has. This Joint (50:50) programme combines Business and Communication Studies in equal measures. Most Honours Select combinations allow you to adapt the weighting of each by 25% after the first year, helping you to keep your options open. Please note, however, students studying either a Business or Economics pathway in combination with another subject cannot increase from 25% to 50% or from 50% to 75% and it is not possible to transfer from a 50% to 75% Law. To find out more about your programme choice, please go first to our Honours Select webpages: www.liverpool.ac.uk/honours-select. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in Industry please put the option code YI in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form. You will be supported in finding and applying for a placement in an organisation which could range from a local small and medium-sized enterprise to a global blue chip company. Recent placements have been taken in organisations including Deloitte, IBM, KPMG, L’Oreal, Microsoft, Unilever and Walt Disney Studios.
