    What? By studying a single subject you study more in-depth into that subject.

    And amongst everything else, not everybody does a degree just to get a job afterwards.

    The majority of Degrees at Keele are duel honours only certain degrees like law and Medicine are given in single honours this is because some people would like to study a duel honours course to get better job prospectus and to do 2 courses that interest them Keele ar individual in that sense.

    ...as far as I know, Keele does offer single honours chemistry?
    Most of the courses are dual-honours because about 90% of the applicants want to do that, qnd even though you're studying less in-depth, you will get a broader education with dual-honours, so in terms of getting a job, it may be slightly lower if you want to be a chem lab worker, but probably higher if you ever want to do extra studying or apply for...well, anything else really. Having two parts to your degree shows that you're more well-rounded in your knowledge and approach.

    Still, check again to see if they do still study single honours chem or not.

    In general, studying Dual Honours is a slight disadvantage in terms of employability (because you don't know much about either subject). However, for some it can be a benefit.
