Hello everyone!

For a while now I have kind of been torn between, pursuing a law degree (I would specialise in Human Rights), or doing an art foundation and then studying Art at university. There are pros and cons to each of them- for example, as cringey as this sounds, I really want to make the world a better place, and due to suffering from discrimination myself, I feel like I could really do some good in the Human Rights Law department, I know they aren't payed very well, and from what people have told me other lawyers seem to look down upon them, however, for me this would matter just as long as I am making a difference. In regards to art, I love art and plus I'm good at it, and I generally am just a creative person, I think art has shaped some of what I am today, my only issue is after my art foundation (which lasts a year) I would go to uni and......
My point exactly I don't know what I can do with an art degree, and I 100% do not want to be an art teacher
Any suggestions? All are appreciated

Why not both?

Take the art foundation. If after 2-3 months of studying art full time you feel confident that it’s the right choice then apply for art courses, if not apply for law.

If you finish an art degree and decide you want to get into law then - take a conversion masters.

Your life path isn’t set in stone at 18. Lots of people do an art foundation and realise that’s as far as they want to take art academically and swap to a different subject for university (or choose something other than university altogether).

Thankyou but I think for now I'm going to focus on law.

Are you into politics? Human Rights based law is heavily politicised and I think some people when they begin studying it are very shocked by that. (God knows why though)

Definitely met a lot of people that dropped it for that reason.

Yeah, I've been fairly keeping up with what's been going in the news, might need to brush up on my political knowledge though.
