    Hi, I'm applying to uni in September and I'm looking to either do a degree in history or in history and archaeology! I study history at a level and have always had a passion for it, and in the future I'm looking to become a history teacher! A few years ago I went to an archaeological dig on castle remains in my home town, and realised I also loved 'hands on history' too. I really want to go on to study history and archaeology at uni but I'm worried I will get there and won't like it or it won't get me into a teaching job!
    Any thoughts and help would be much appreciated!!!
    Thank you

    You need 50% of your degree to be in a curriculum subject to become a teacher, so you definitely can become a history teacher with a joint honours History and X subject degree. If you start a history and archaeology degree but later decide archaeology isn't for you, it is highly likely that your university will let you switch to a single honours history degree instead.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
