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.

MEDIA AND COMMUNICATIONS

As Social Media companies sell personal data and foreign policy is conducted by tweet, it is more important than ever to understand Media and Communications. If you use Instagram or Snapchat, if you play computer games or the latest music, if you binge on Netflix, or if you want to be a vlogger, then Media and Communications is the degree for you. We will help you design webpages, write perfect copy and explore and apply techniques of advertising and public relations. We will show you how the media is regulated and how it works, as well as aiding you to reach as wide an audience as possible. The media and communication industries will continue to grow and there are endless opportunities for you to find a rewarding career within them.

You will explore areas including:

  • advertising and public relations campaigns, blogs and digital design pieces, including short films and apps
  • the meanings of adverts, texts, or films, and how media organisations work
  • research, applying methods such as questionnaire surveys, content analysis, focus groups and interviews
  • management skills, project planning and team working
  • practical experience in an international context, with an option to participate in a field trip in Europe

SOCIOLOGY

Join our vibrant and inclusive learning community to investigate the ways in which social life is organised, structured and experienced. You will be supported and inspired through our interactive teaching and our commitment to personal tutoring.

Alongside a wealth of exciting modules, you can take advantage of volunteering opportunities and the chance to reflect academically on any paid work that you undertake. The course has been designed to enhance your employment prospects through the offer of modules that support particular career pathways, and a curriculum that prepares you for work as well as postgraduate study.

You will explore areas including:

  • contemporary social issues and problems
  • classical and contemporary sociological theory
  • research methods.
