About Joint Honours in Science

About Joint Honours in Science

This degree is part of the Joint Honours in Science programme. By studying two subjects, you develop a broad range of expertise and a set of skills that spans two specialist areas, equipping you for a range of careers.

Mastering two subjects together means you are well-prepared for the multidisciplinary challenges of the real world, developing the skills that employers value, such as:

  • time management
  • organisation
  • self-motivation

You select from the same range of topics as Single Honours students and achieve the same high academic standard, but you cover fewer topics in each subject. The topics are closely linked to our research expertise, meaning you study at the cutting edge of the discipline.

You receive careers support in the form of a career development module personally tailored to your professional development. There's also excellent support on offer from the University's award-winning Careers Service.
