    Is it worth doing a joint honours? What are the pros and cons? Is it more appealing to employers as you'll have studied two subjects and possibly gained a greater range of skills? Or is it not as good since you'll have studied two subjects in less depth? Basically how does it work, is there more work, and is it worth it?

    You would need to ensure that it's a qualifying course with enough content to actually qualify as a social worker.

    I am a social worker and now manage a team of staff in a local authority. As far as I am aware, none of the staff I work with completed a joint subject degree. From my point of view, I can't see it being more appealing to employers but that's my opinion.
