The focus of a degree within the joint honours programme at the University of Northampton is two named subjects. It can involve closely related subjects, or contrasting subjects. Depending on how much time you want to spend studying particular subjects, your degree may emphasise one of these subjects rather than the other (a major and minor programme) or there is the option of studying them more equally, resulting in a joint degree. By studying at the University of Northampton, you can be sure that:
