    Wasn't sure where to put this as it involved both art and science and they're even split up on here!

    I'm been rather torn for a while now between doing an art or a science, I want to go into the games industry to become a games artist however I would also like a good degree which will give me a more open career outlook in the future.

    BUT I have seen in northampton and worcester university that they do joint honours programs for both art AND a science, however, they are the only two I can find.

    My questions are,
    Is there any other universities known to mix art and science?
    Is a joint honours a good idea and worth while qualification?

    Any other information/opinions/ideas are welcome!

    Joint honours are a good idea if you're trying to keep your options open, but they are a lot of work, sometimes more so than single honours. However not many universities like mixing arts and sciences. Check out Joint Honours at Liverpool though because they do a couple of programmes which may be of interest to you.

    As for getting a degree with 'a more open career outlook', in this economic climate, there isn't much of an outlook for many degree programmes. I'd personally choose something I liked so I would be motivated to study for 3 years.
