What are peoples opinions/experiences of combined degrees? I've always thought that by doing a combined degree, you missed out in some way, only getting the general bits of the 2 different subjects. Just been to an open day, though, and am now considering it, as I really want to do both subjects. Are you really missing out on the best bits by doing a combined degree?
The degree im starting in September is combined, 3 subjects for the first year and then 2 in the second and third! I was a bit scared about applyin for them but my school told me it just kept my options open. Fair enough the depth of knowledge isnt there but it depends what you wanna do! Im either gonna go into teaching which is highly likely or journalism so i've gotta do the postgrad anyway so its not really gonna disadvantage me!
I'm considering Archaeology and Ancient History. I've always planned on doing either one or the other, but I can't decide between the two, so I suppose a combined degree might be a good thing... Hadn't really considered it before now though, so need to look into it a bit more!
