Course description

Our Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is offering students a flexible and exciting way to study through its innovative Honours Select degree programme. 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. Your degree, your choice Choose from three different Honours Select programmes: 1.Single Honours degree (100%): Specialise in one subject and immerse yourself in something you're passionate about. 2.Joint Honours degree (50% / 50%): Choose two areas of strength and broaden your horizons and career options. 3.Major / Minor Honours degree (75% / 25%): Complement your Major with a subject that you loved at A Level, or one that could enhance your career prospects, or maybe even try something completely new that you’ve always been interested in. This programme has a Major (75%) in Business and a Minor (25%) in Sociology. Flexible to fit around you We understand that a lot can change during your first year of university; you’ve had chance to think about your future, your career aspirations may take a new direction, or you may have grown to be as passionate about your Minor subject as your Major. Things do change, which is why we’ve made it easy for those studying two subjects to adapt the weighting of each by 25% after the first year, helping you to keep your options open*. For example, if you enrol onto a Major / Minor Honours degree programme you can change this to a Joint or Single Honours after your first year; equally you can change a Joint Honours degree to a Major / Minor Honours degree. It’s your decision. * Please note that students studying either a Business or Economics pathway in combination with another subject cannot increase from 25% to 50% or from 50% to 75%.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
The number of business studies graduates fell significantly last year after a long period of increase. But there were still more than 14,000 degrees awarded and this is the third most popular subject for new graduates. Because so many graduates get business studies degrees, you can find them everywhere in the economy, and very few jobs are completely out of reach for a good business studies graduate. Around 40% go into jobs in finance, sales, recruitment, management (particularly retail) or marketing. There is also a small (but well paid) group who take their technical skills into computing and IT. Thousands of graduates from this subject go into professional jobs every year, and average starting salaries are above the average for all subjects and particularly healthy in London where they top £25k. Graduates with good degree grades in business studies are much more likely to get good jobs, so don’t be complacent, and keep a close eye on your grades.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
We have quite a lot of sociology graduates, although numbers fell last year. But graduates still do pretty well. Most sociology graduates go straight into work when they complete their degrees, and a lot of graduates go into jobs in social professions such as recruitment, education, community and youth work, and housing. An important option for a sociology graduate is social work - and we're short of people willing to take this challenging but rewarding career. Sociology is a flexible degree and you can find graduates from the subject in pretty much every reasonable job — obviously, you don't find many doctors or engineers, but you do find them in finance, the media, healthcare, marketing and even IT. Sociology graduates taking further study often branch out into other qualifications, like teaching, law, psychology, HR and even maths, so don’t think a sociology degree restricts you to just one set of options.
