I might not though. I’m leaning more towards politics because I have strong connections in that area

Heyy!

I'm currently doing a Politics & Philosophy degree and it's honestly wonderful. I was quite unsure if I wanted to do this or Politics & International Relations but it turned out to be the best decision I've ever made, because they're so interconnected and I often notice that there are concepts I know from Philosophy that make the Politics part a lot clearer. If you want to go into law or politics, having a background in philosophy can give you a huge advantage in terms of your approach and understanding of the practical things you'll be doing in your career. Some of the cool things about studying Politics & Philosophy at Sheffield in particular are that there's actually a module on Philosophy of Law, none of the modules in Philosophy are compulsory, so you can take absolutely anything that you find interesting (and at the same time avoid the modules you don't think you'd like) and some of our Philosophy lecturers that work on political philosophy actually have a background in law, so there's a lot to learn from them as well. There are also a lot of advantages in terms of assessment for PolPhil compared to Politics & History, I can tell you all about that if you'd like to know more.

Let me know if you have any questions about this type of degree in general or anything related to the field or the Uni, I'd be happy to help!
