Prospects for Employment and Further Study
The best of both worlds
Employers like the Combined degree - for the obvious reason that graduates come out with a range of skills from the different subjects they have studied. Unusually, Combined allows you to study a subject with vocational relevance, such as a Language, Management, Psychology or Economics, alongside such elements of a traditional, liberal degree such as Philosophy or History. In this way Combined can give you a degree relevant to the world of employment and a traditional academic degree.
But remember that most graduates go into employment that is not directly related to their degree. The important thing is the breadth of mind, forms of understanding and various skills that university helps you develop.
Where do our graduates go?
Recent Combined Arts graduates have entered employment in a variety of fields including trainee management, events administration, journalism, the police, client sales and customer relations, publishing, librarianship. Employers include John Lewis, The Body Shop International, Hodder Arnold, the NHS, Waitrose, Walker Media, IBM, Associated Newspapers, Cancer Research UK and Buckingham Palace.
Where will you go?
We are constantly being told that the world of employment in the
future will not be like the past: that it will become more common for
people to change their careers several times during their lives, for
instance, or that 'portfolio careers' which combine a range of
different part-time enterprises will be the norm and not the exception.
The Combined degree gives you flexibility and keeps your options open;
it proves you are versatile.
