Is a joint honours degree a good idea?Watch
currently thinking about doing English literature and French at uni with most of my time doing English. Is this a bad idea as after uni I'd love to become an English academic?
If you wanted to work in English Language then it's neither hear nor there - a foreign language might be useful to give you a better appreciation for comparative linguistics generally, but this may not be as relevant for some areas of Eng. Lang, but isn't likely to be any worse than a purely Literature degree (or even a combined Language/Linguistics and Literature course in honesty).
