Geography with Economics at LSE or Economics and Geography at UCL?Watch
I am going to be a C2 student in just a few days' time (eep!) and I am seriously considering my uni choices. I am currently taking Geography, Economics, Mathematics and Chemistry for my As.
I have always been interested in Geography and am thankfully doing pretty well in the subject. Economics is also another subject I enjoy and am doing not too bad in, so I am considering studying both subjects together (since y'know it's always good to know a little econs in everything you do). I am wondering if it is wise to take up this joint (?) degree/honours? In terms of the difficulty of the degree, career prospects, etc.
Further context: I am interested in doing things related to human geography in the future, eg. urban planning, sustainable development. Is this a good direction to go towards?
And bringing on to my next question, Geog with Econs at LSE or Econs and Geog at UCL? I understand that LSE provides the major-minor degree while UCL provides 50/50 in both subjects (although the degree is BSc Econs? Hmm... don't quite understand this).
Heard that the social life at LSE is also meh... Anyone knows more about the social aspect at both LSE and UCL?
Thank you for your time. Appreciate all insights on these matters.
