Course summary

Our selection of Combined Honours courses, one of the most extensive in the United Kingdom, enables you to diversify your learning and employability skills. Study for a degree that combines two different subjects; beneficial to those who have particular cross-discipline interests or those who are not yet sure what they want to specialise in. Visit our website to find out more about Combined Honours courses and what benefits they can offer you.

AMERICAN STUDIES

America is distinct among modern countries because of the stories it tells about itself; as the land of the free, and as a site of endless possibilities. A degree in American Studies asks you to uncover the stories that are not being told and to interrogate the world’s superpower using a variety of disciplinary approaches. This degree will equip you with the tools you need to make sense of the world and to learn from a decidedly decolonised curriculum that privileges the histories and cultures of marginalised and oppressed peoples. Our academics are leading researchers in American Cinema, History, Literature, and Politics and we bring our expert knowledge to bear in challenging and rewarding classes, on topics including the civil rights movement, contemporary presidential politics, and the literature of the Deep South.

You will explore areas including:

  • American film, journalism, literature, and music
  • histories of race, colonialism and oppression
  • the frontier at home and abroad in the context of politics and foreign relations
  • issues of ethnicity, gender, and class.

APPLIED CRIMINOLOGY

Crime dominates the news and is a constant feature in the entertainment media. Applied Criminology is a popular choice either as a single honours degree or in combination with another subject such as sociology or forensic investigation.

The course examines the nature, extent and causes of crime and the methods used to manage criminal behaviour.

You will explore areas including:

  • criminological theory
  • youth crime and the youth justice system
  • crime and social control
  • the media representation of crime
  • different forms of crime such as hate crime and violent crime.

We have strong links with criminal justice agencies and you will be encouraged to make the most of the volunteering and networking opportunities available throughout your course in order to give you the best possible start to your career. We place our students at the centre of everything we do. You will always be assured of high quality research informed teaching.
