    Hi everyone, just looking for some advice really.

    I want to apply for history for 2014 entry and I'm currently researching universities and courses.
    I think I'm going to apply for the History BA V100 course but I've noticed that a lot of the universities I like offer the History and Archaeology BA and it looks interesting.
    I have a massive passion for history and am also hugely interested in ancient history, the classics and archaeology.

    I'm no wondering whether it may be a good option to go for ancient history and history or maybe history and archaeology but I'm not sure if career prospects would change with the joint honours degree?

    If I was to study history and archaeology for example would my career prospects lessen in comparison to just studying history?

    If anyone can help I would be very grateful.
    Thanks.

    You need to look more closely at the content of individual courses and at the specific entry requirements.

    1) Not all History courses are the same. Look carefully at each course and read the unit/options descriptions. What *sort* of history are you interested in?

    2) Do you have any practical experience in Archaeology beyond 'that looks interesting'?
