    Hi all,

    I've never thought of myself as the kind of person who might study a degree in Philosophy. But here I am, doing just that.
    I want to be a journalist- or someone who travels and dishes their opinion about- but would philosophy be a useful degree to get me there?
    I mean I like English but I think it's too hard- I've never really understood it. I feel like Philosophy is Literature but just kinder to my brain.
    Anyway, Philosophy degrees- thoughts?

    BTW for AS I got AAAAC in Economics, English Literature, Religious Studies, Spanish and History.

    Picking philosophy as something "easier" can hardly be considered as a good idea.
    It's more like history with bizarre maths free from calculations but it doesn't exactly make it easier. A lot to memorize and a lot to undertand in terms of, how exactly the system works.

    Jurnalism does not to be a sensible path for anyone. Too many people want to go this way.

    dishes their opinion about.
    A journalist is not to have an opinion.
