    I'm taking Classics BA at the moment because I want to learn Latin and Greek to be able to read ancient philosophy in the original. But in the future really I want to end up studying philosophy rather than Classics. I picked my course because it allows for a lot of choice with modules; the only requirements are really that I take Latin and Greek, so I'm taking philosophy modules too. But if I go on to do a philosophy masters etc. would I be at a disadvantage because my undergrad course isn't Philosophy? Thanks

    I think you could be at a disadvantage with not having your BA in philosophy unless they think you've done enough modules in philosophy as some universities do accept joint degrees in it. Your best bet is to do some research and contact admissions of universities that you are interested in so you can get a straight answer.
