Is Politics and Sociology a good degree? Watch
It also opens doors to the huge, international NGO sector so there's a lot of scope for that.
Soc & Pol degree>>>Journalism
Cardiff is lovely too I hear.
something I can tell you is that your first term of uni will be full of introductory lectures - you don't have to be an expert in sociology or politics, it's all newbie stuff. if you go into the course with enthusiasm you won't find it too difficult to grapple. I mean, you must have at least a teeny bit of interest in sociology and politics right haha??
also, if you're doing a joint course it's likely you'll be able to drop half of it if you're not enjoying it. I did sociology a-level but not politics, so if I can't get my head around the political stuff I'll beg to continue with just a sociology degree. if you got onto a joint honours course I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed to do a single honours instead.
if there's anything you want to know about sociology (I did a full a-level in it, not a degree, but its all the stuff you'd be taught at the beginning so I know enough) then I'm happy to go into more detail.
It's a great way to see how what the government implements and how it effects society and people and culture. With Politics, you do really have to love it and be interested as it can get very boring and monotonous at times but it's such an eye-opener into how our world works even down the sociological aspects of communications and behaviour.
I wish you every success with it, I hope you enjoy it just as much as I have!!
