Joint Honours degrees give you the maximum flexibility to study subject areas that genuinely interest you. Youll be able to shape your study according to your strengths, interests and career ambitions. If you have a keen interest in English, culture, communication and society then this joint honours degree will offer you a unique perspective of these elements throughout the ages. You'll be encouraged to examine how our societies, communicative methods, technologies and personalities are constantly undergoing transformations. English at NTU allows you to explore literary texts from the traditional to the contemporary. Our English courses are in the UK's Top 10 for student satisfaction (NSS 2018). Joint honours degrees enable you to take a flexible approach to learning by shaping your course to your own strengths and interests. ENGLISH at NTU offers students the opportunity to study literature from the Renaissance period right through to the 21st Century as well as delving into creative and professional writing. You'll gain expert teaching from our award winning writers and researchers who will introduce you to a selection of exciting texts and support you to secure sufficient work placement opportunities that will benefit you with transferable skills for your career. 97% of our joint honours English undergraduates are in work or further study within just six months of finishing their degree (DLHE 2016/17). COMMUNICATION AND SOCIETY will allow you to examine the rapidly changing transformations of society, people and technologies through the use of theoretical and practical aspects of communication. You'll also examine the evolving media through which communication takes place. The course aims to challenge many core assumptions about human identity and the vitality of social communication. English at NTU will help develop your written and verbal communication, enhance your professional and academic writing and help you to gain valuable work experience. Our Communication and Society course will help you to understand the relevance of communication and how various cultures and societies use it.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Only a small number of students study courses within this catch-all subject area, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at any stats. Marketing and PR were the most likely jobs for graduates from these courses, but it's sensible to go on open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from the course, and what previous graduates did.

Sociology, social policy and anthropology
