English language or literatureWatch
I am thinking of studying English at uni however I don’t know whether it would be more useful for me to study English language or English literature as I have heard that an English literature degree is useless
Very far from it, unless you have an extreme natural facility for that sort of critical analysis (like, comfortably G9 and writing essays and poetry for fun). It also depends what you do with it. To become an acclaimed novelist, it might be a waste, as that's an oversaturated industry. To get into journalism, perhaps not as bad when you have the experience to go with it. English Lang is useful to go into linguistics at university (sort of thing they study). English Lit, much less so, although still reasonable.
