    If I did the combined honours in arts degree at Durham University, would this be less respected than a named subject degree?
    I'd be doing it because it's the only way I could do History & Politics at Durham as they don't offer a normal degree in it, so I'd have mostly those (like a joint honours) plus maybe a couple of English lit modules but it would basically be a degree in History and Politics but it would be named 'combined honours in arts' (as far as I'm aware)

    I don't think it makes much difference. Unless you are applying to do a job that has a high history or politics content, I expect most employers will see it as just another generic arts degree and treat you as such.
