Course summary

If you are finding it hard to decide between two subjects you enjoy, you could tailor your degree with a combined honours course. Variety, flexibility and a chance to maximise your employability are just some of the advantages on offer when you choose to study a combined honours degree. And Canterbury Christ Church University offers one of the widest selection of combined honours degrees in the UK. Politics Skills of clear-sighted political analysis are needed more than ever before, as our traditional political ‘certainties’ crumble. Our Politics course situates the big issues of the day in their historical and philosophical contexts. You’ll explore continuity and change in local, national and global dimensions of politics, and scrutinise political ideas, structures and approaches that will help you to understand our complex, and ever-changing circumstances. There is strong emphasis on helping you gain the transferable skills that employers are looking for. You’ll develop skills in critical thought and analysis, working as part of a team, networking, and the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly and concisely. This will help you to enter roles in a variety of sectors such as national or local government, non-governmental organisations, journalism or teaching. Religion, Philosophy and Ethics Religious, philosophical and ethical concerns often feature in the media and underpin a range of controversial issues in the world we share. If you like thinking about and debating these subjects then you’ll enjoy this course. You’ll be taught by an experienced team of academics who have published widely on topics such as Buddhist philosophy, conflicts over Jewish identity and interfaith dialogue.
