    English Literature or History I would say.

    I think Anthropology. I mean, it fits into everything, and if we don't understand ourselves then it's not great (then again maybe I'm biased...)

    If I could teach only one, it would be Music, hands down.

    But I do agree with English, if it had a different emphasis (it is quite similar to Music in some ways).

    Anthropology is a very good suggestion IMO. It is one of my six basic subjects (Maths, Physics, English, Anthropology, Music and Drawing). If you taught it in a foreign language, it would be even better.

    History for sure. The English literature suggestions are just idiotic.

    I'd say R.E. I think it's important for people to educate themselves on other peoples religious beliefs -> less hatred and ignorance ☺️

    Economics isn't an arts or humanities subject at most institutions.

    It's a Bsc if the course is mathematical and a BA if it's not so mathematical. But it's still majorly considered a humanity subject. Unfortunately there isn't an "in-between".

    I think Politics is pretty important. If more people studied politics, maybe we would have decent MPs who actually knew how to run the government

    At the university I went to and most of the universities that my friends went to Economics was entirely seperate from the humanities departments and was a Bsc.

    If we are considering Economics a humanities subject then I would have chosen it.

    Economics and Politics are social sciences.
