There are too many courses to say. You're going to have to narrow down your interests/favourite subjects

I’m definitely going to pair Spanish with a degree as I think it will open up a lot more doors. I prefer history to politics or geography but I feel it’s a useless degree

In that case, you've answered your own question I guess

Sounds a great idea to me - history and Spanish should be a good mix. I dont see history of being of less value than geography or politics. I guess you could look at degrees which let you do two languages also.

Hi samc103

I am a current PhD History candidate at the University of Hull. I have also completed degrees in BA History & MA History.

I also studied both HIstory and Geography at A-Level many moons ago, and I've studied Geography as well as incorporating to a limited extent politics into my degrees as well.

My advice when picking a degree, if you are wishing to go to university is to think about what interests you the most. If that is Spanish great! As you seem to suggest here you're also interested in history.
Because of the nature of History/politics/geography, there is potential to cover aspects of these whilst completing a History degree - for example, studying political history if that's of interest to you would then mean that you are indirectly continuing with the study of politics.

The great thing about completing a degree in any of these disciplines is the skill set which it develops during your time as a student which is desirable to employers if you're wanting to get a job after completion of the degree. None of these degrees are 'useless' because they all develop you as a person. And it is not just the degree but the overall experience of university which develops skill sets even further.

My advice would be to search for courses using UCAS and look at different university webpages and their details surrounding individual courses, module choices and opportunities which are available to you as a student.

Hope this helps,
Emily
