Combined Honours in Social Sciences
Design your own bespoke degree in our flexible programme
Combined Honours in Social Sciences provides flexibility and choice across Durham University’s breadth of world-renowned research-led education, allowing you to create a bespoke, academically ambitious degree programme suited to your individual interests, strengths and career plans.
How does it work?
Whether you want to create a joint degree not formally offered by Durham University, or combine up to 4 subjects in a unique way to suit your interests, the Durham Combined Honours in Social Sciences degree can provide you with a bespoke programme of study.
You can combine modules from top-ranking departments in unusual ways, perhaps focusing on a particular area of interest from a number of disciplinary perspectives. We support your studies with a range of workshops tailored specifically to the needs of Combined Honours students, with sessions on employability, CV writing and disciplinary differences in academic writing to ensure that you are equipped for success.
I feel that with the CHSS programme, of course depending on people’s modules/subject selection, I have been given a fuller picture of some issues that I wouldn’t have had if I had only had one subject as the lens through which I viewed it.Gemma Klopper, Geography, Politics and Chinese Language
