Honours Select gives you the opportunity to design a degree that’s tailored to suit your specific interests, academic strengths and career aspirations. You can choose to study one or two subjects from a wide selection of more than 30, and decide for yourself how much weight each subject has.

This Major/Minor (75:25) programme combines Communication and Media with Game Design Studies to keep your options open. To find out more about your programme choice, please go first to our Honours Select webpages: www.liverpool.ac.uk/honours-select.

f you choose the programme with a ‘Year in Industry’, you will spend Year Three on a paid placement within an organisation in the media industry, broadly defined. Support for your placement will be provided by the Department and the School of the Arts.

Your reflexive written account of the experience, connecting it to your academic studies, will contribute towards your final degree result, before your programme concludes with a fourth and final year of academic study in Liverpool.
