I'm really stuck about which path to do down as I like both humanities, mainly philosophy and politics, and also sciences, mainly biology and chemistry. I was thinking of a degree in neuroscience, psychology, natural sciences or human science (or something similar) but I also like the idea of doing a PPE degree or just a philosophy or politics degree. I'm really torn between the two and was wondering if there were any degrees in which I could combine both e.g. politics and neuroscience or philosophy and neuroscience?

Thanks in advance.

There are both 'Liberal Arts' (Exeter, Bristol etc) and 'Liberal Arts and Sciences' degrees (Birmingham) where you study a range of subjects, and the connections between them, but you can often 'major' in one subject. These degrees usually offer a year abroad for even more bread/depth of study/experience.

There are also some an interesting degrees at Leeds - Biology with the History and Philosophy of Science or History of Science with Philosophy and Politics and other combinations - https://ahc.leeds.ac.uk/philosophy-undergraduate, and other Science/Philosophy courses at UCL - https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-st...hy-science-bsc and at LSE - https://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/U...entific-Method

Philosophy & Psychology at Durham - https://www.durham.ac.uk/study/courses/cv85/
Natural Sciences specialising in Neuroscience at York - https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergr...-neuroscience/

Hi, some uni give you the opportunity to study an open curriculum (but I never heard of neuroscience as an option with a humanity as second subject).
Durham has 3 degrees: liberal arts, CHSS and natural sciences
Exeter has the flexible combined honours
St Andrews has a joint honours degree
And a lot of unis have a combined degree, but the possible combination are chosen by the university.
I hope this could help
