With a Joint Honours degree, you study two subjects and depending on how much time you want to spend on each subject, your degree may emphasise one subject more than the other, which is a major and minor programme. Alternatively, you can study your subjects equally, resulting in a joint degree. Joint honours degrees are taught in the same way as single honours degrees, with 120 credits taught per year, over three years. By studying at the University of Northampton, you can be sure that:
