    So I am currently studying Business, Economics, Sociology and Media. And am pretty certain that I want to stick with Economics and Sociology.

    Now, its clear that in many ways media and business are both considered soft subjects but picking which one to drop is proving difficult. I prefer media and find it interesting but feel that business is the better a level to have. I also feel that business and economics together may be seen as too narrow but im not sure if employees/universities would prefer this or not.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated, thank you, and good luck to everyone!!

    What do you want to do at uni? Media is definitely considered more of a soft subject than Business, but it might be worth having a look at some entry requirements to see if they specify you can't have both Economics and Business
