Are there any marketing degrees which are not along side a management degree

I'm exploring my options at the moment , I definitely want to study marketing but the more I look at marketing and management the less I really want to study management so I'm trying to find other subjects which may be more useful but my top 2 uni choices at the moment only do marketing with management

Are there any universities which offer marketing along side another subject which isn't business or management?

I looked at the university of Derby and the subjects offer very similar career prospects to marketing and the university of Liverpool don't offer marketing as part of their 50/50 or 25/75 degree options

None of the above degrees are accredited by the Association for Nutrition i.e. you can't become a nutrtionist with the degree
Shout out to Liverpool Hope for having such creative joint degree options.

The thing I would be aware of is whether the marketing degrees are accredited by CIM, since I would value the CIM qualificaiton over the degree (personal opinion). You can check for the accreditation using: https://www.cim.co.uk/qualifications/cim-accredited-degree/
The degrees that are accredited by CIM has an asterisk (*) next to them

If you want to check with the degrees is accredited by IDM, you would need to check with your tutor. The following page shows the list of universities that are in partnership with IDM: https://www.theidm.com/employability-schemes/for-students/qualifications-for-university-students
These unis are marked with an exclamation mark next to their name for your reference

Unfortunately the DMI doesn't provide a list of accredited degrees

PR degrees accredited by the CIPR can be found on the following: https://cipr.co.uk/CIPR/Learn_Develop/Qualifications/Recognised_university_courses.aspx The recognised degrees have & next to their titles.

Thank you so much . Really appreciate it
As above CIM accreditation (and the level of exemption it offers) is far more useful for getting marketing jobs than the specifics of the university/degree.

Find an accredited course you like the look of, preferably with a placement (again experience and CIM is what will matter for your CV) and enjoy yourself
