I have been told that if it was a Criminology and Psychology degree the course content would be 50% each but if it was Criminology with Psychology the course content would be more Criminology than Psychology.

"and" means Joint honors
"with" takes on the American major/minor approach

The use of the term 'and' is used to indicate a Joint Honours combination. This means that you will take an equal number of modules in both subjects. Your final degree classification will depend on your performance in both subjects. The use of 'with' indicates that the first named subject is worth a higher proportion of the degree. This means that you will take more modules in it during the course of the academic year. 'With' degrees are usually in a 60:40 combination at my University, but this will vary between institutions.

and = 50:50 subject content
with = 75:25/60:40 (depends on uni) subject content

I forgot to add that it is sometimes possible to taken modules from outside of your main department too. For instance, I am reading for a Joint degree in English and Theology. It is possible to take 'Free Electives' from the catalogue of available modules in the second and third years - and in the first year too, if it replaces the module for the subject other than English in various Joint Honours combinations.

It varies between universities I have found. Mine is 'Fine art and English literature' but i can choose what ratio i want to study, and also have the option to take a language module.
