    I am planning to do an english and history joint undergrad degree. I would just like some advice on it, many people I know haven't heard of it together and I want to know some more info on it. Anyone who is doing or planning to do this same degree, what exactly do you learn? are they both separate or is it using literature from different periods of time. Also is there any point of doing it? I will enjoy it but I don't know where it can lead me (career wise), best universities to teach this degree course? Any information on it will really help! Thank youu

    Every university's course will differ as to how it divides up the course. You need to read up what they say on their websites. Be careful when applying. If the course is described as English AND History, then both have equal weight. If it's English WITH History, then English will be the dominant element. The degree will lead you to the same places as any other non-vocational subject. 60% of graduate jobs don't require any specific subject, merely a degree. Choose a university on the basis of which one has the most interesting components from your point of view.
