    I recently found out that it's possible to do English lit and fine art together, which is exciting as I thought that English lit was only coupled with subjects like history, and that I'd have to choose one over the other if / when I went to uni.

    However, I'm curious to know how 'respected' this choice would be in terms of employment / in comparison with only doing literature? I think I'm more likely to go down the English route in terms of a career, so would a joint honours with art make me seem like I was less invested in the subject or lacked certain skills? It would be upsetting to never study art again after college, as I love it

    Well it depends what you want to do for a career.
    If art and literature are what you love, then this sounds like a great chance to get into them more deeply, although I'm sure you're aware that you would not have to abandon either and could continue to peruse your interest in the arts in other ways, even if you took a degree in, say, business or science.
    I would say go for it, but also make sure that you get some work experience in the field you want to work in, either during a gap year or whilst at uni.

    Thank you for replying! And yes I am aware of that, I just think it would be a shame to never do one in an academic setting again. I'll definitely be taking the advice about work experience on board
