I can’t decide what degree to do at all, I equally love all of my a level subjects and I do not have a career path I definitely intend to go down.
Out of English literature, history and geography which degree will give the most graduate job opportunities and is the most highly favoured upon. Just your personal opinion or experience would be great in helpful me way some pro’s and con’s as I am needing to make my decision very soon.
Thanks!

Why not a joint or combined honours degree?

Hi there!

I remember having this exact dilemma myself, I feel you. It's hard to compare these degrees against each other and decide which provides the best job prospects - each is a respectable degree in its own right.

What makes one degree more valuable than another is how much you engage with the course and wider university experience. The degree is obviously the fundamental aspect of your time at university, but if you're stuck, perhaps you might want to start thinking a bit deeper about the different kinds of opportunities you can access between courses and universities.

For instance, alongside a history degree you could also end up being President of your university's history society, or attend some really interesting field trips to historical sites relevant to your studies, or make some really useful contacts in the history department - or literally anything else you can think of For me, it meant sports clubs, working with the student union, and even running this account right now

If you want some more inspiration - UEA have a great graphic which breaks down the course choice process into segments, making the whole thing seem less daunting. I'll leave a link to it here.

One more thing - choosing a degree in a subject does not mean that your career is bound to that area forever! A good example is Prime Minister Theresa May, a geography graduate!

Hope this helped
