It's UCAS application time and I still am unsure as to whether to study French and German - I like the process of learning languages and would base my studies around philosophy and literature (further in my studies) or Liberal Arts - I would be able to study one of these languages and a range of other subjects such as English/comparative literature, philosophy, some social science and even technology (sometimes)!
I have a fear of pigeonholing myself in terms of learning. What if I don't like balancing two languages? I don't want to miss out on the breadth of subjects that I can do, but saying , I do like the depth whilst learning.
I have also done some research into the Flexible Degree programmes in Scotland.
Before this I was considering a degree in Interactive Media- probably doesn't help but *sigh*
I don't know what to do...send help :0/

So you want to study French, German, philosophy, English and comparative literature, a social science and technology? I'm afraid that isn't possible, not even on a Liberal Arts / Combined Honours degree. You're going to have to refine your interests a little bit.
Language degrees have a lot of literature/cultural content, it isn't all language learning. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find a university that does Modern Languages degree with modules in comparative/French/German literature and philosophy.
If you have high grades then you might consider UCL's European Social and Political Studies degree. It has a slightly confusing structure, but this degree essentially lets you study languages, take courses in your chosen language(s) literature, as well as European history, law, politics and philosophy, and specialise in various humanities/social science/technology subjects.Last edited by Snufkin; 26-10-2016 at 15:31.

Hey, thank you for your response! I was in panic mode in terms of deciding what to do and just kinda spluttered out all of my interests. I realised that I do want a degree where I can do French and German, but also do modules outside of my degree course (saying that, societies exist). The course that you recommended seemed ideal; however, I don't have the target grades for it!
