I'm currently trying to decide whether to go ahead with the part time Social Studies BA degree offered by Warwick's Centre for Lifelong Learning, having looked at the modules and doing some basic research on the course I am quite confident that I will enjoy the work and therefore should get good grades from it too. The option to major in Economics is also very attractive to me (I dream about studying single honours Economics but doubt my mathematical ability).
What I'm hung up on however is the reputation of the CLL and/or degree. After completing the undergraduate degree I would like to study for a Masters degree too, I can't see a problem applying within Warwick but at present I'm aiming to study for a masters in Europe.
Does anyone know what the CLL's reputation is with other universities, in the UK and in Europe? Is it even seen as separate from Warwick?
If completed, I would have a Social Studies BA from Warwick, any ideas how that may be looked upon when applying for (last course I looked at) say a Political Science Masters at Milan?
If it's relevant, my long-term aim is a career in teaching/lecturing (16+), ideally politics, philosophy and/or economics.
