University of Sheffield Joint Honours


Are you a high achieving student wanting to relish the challenge of studying more than one subject at university? This new combined honours programme allows you greater flexibility in exploring and pursuing a range of arts and humanities subjects at degree level.

You’ll select three subjects at the start of the programme and then have the option of continuing with the three subjects or continuing with two subjects on a dual honours degree. We’ll give you academic guidance and support to help you make the right choice.

Subjects you can choose from include: Archaeology, Catalan, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, History, Linguistics, Music, Philosophy, Polish, Portuguese, Religion, Theology and the Bible, Russian, Sociology, Spanish and Theatre.

If you choose a modern foreign language you will study one year abroad, making the degree four years.

The programme is structured carefully to ensure academic rigour and is supported by a long history of combined honours and multi-subject degree experience within the faculty.

Financial help from the University – bursaries

If you’re a UK student, you could be entitled to a University bursary. A bursary is the same as a grant – you don’t have to pay it back.
