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 Irish Studies and a Minor (25%) in French.

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%.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

It's often said the UK doesn't produce enough modern language graduates, and graduates from French courses have a lot of options available to them when they complete their courses. About one in five working graduates from 2015 got jobs overseas — often as English teachers — which is much higher than for most subjects. Those who want to stay at home to work find jobs in education, and anywhere where good communication skills are a must. That means you can find French graduates in education, in marketing, in the arts and in business and finance as teachers, writers, personnel officers, financial advisors, analysts, sales people and marketers. But remember — whilst employers say they rate graduates who have more than one language, you need to have them as part of a whole package of good skills.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
