Combined Subjects combinations

If you choose to study two subjects you can do so as a major/minor combination, or as a dual combination.

Major/minor combination

A major/minor combination involves taking approximately two thirds of your credits on the major subject, and one third on the minor subject.

Examples of major/minor combinations:

  • BA (Hons) English with History
  • BSc (Hons) Psychology with Sociology

Dual combination

A dual combination involves taking equal number of credits in both subjects.

Examples of dual combinations:

  • BA (Hons) Politics and History
  • BSc (Hons) Psychology and Criminology

If you take a dual combination with one subject that is a BA and one which is a BSc, the award of a BA or BSc is determined by the subject in which you complete your final project or dissertation.

The following courses can all be taken as part of a Combined Subjects combination. Each course combination has a page containing Key Information Set (KIS) widgets, which give an overview of important information about the course.
