I got an offer for the Education with English Studies BA at Durham. It lets me split my study evenly between Literature and Education. I'm really excited to get on this course, as it's an amazing Uni for literature and I've never looked at education before which will engage me.
But, I'm worried that future employers will think of it as a teaching degree? Or some will think of it less because it's not a straight 'English' degree. I've got offers for straight English at other universities and I now feel like I've made a mistake not applying for straight English at Durham. Is it possible to switch courses at the start of term? Or, is my degree called 'English Studies' with the studies part encasing the education department?
cheers for helping a confused student
