Degrees which don't involve maths?

I have always struggled at maths, and it was only with the help of a maths tutor I was able to get a grade 5 in maths (higher) GCSE. That was such a stretch for me because maths tires me out so much. After every maths lesson or tutoring session I would feel so exhausted in comparison to my other subjects.
With this in mind, I'd want to find out which degrees involve little to no maths. Since I'm not 100% certain what career I want, I don't know which degree would be good. I don't have an interest in a particular subject either - I like many topics from different disciplines.
I don't want to set myself up for failure because I want to get the most out of my education without it being beyond my ability.

If you’re interested in many topics, go for Graphic Design. Art, Design, Typography, Photography, Television and History of Art & Design. Also Humanities subjects like Bachelors in English, History, Political Science etc. where you will need lot less or merely negligible Maths to get your degree.


As far as scope and salary is concerned, it depends on you. I’m also not good in math and hate it to the core, but I certainly wouldn’t choose a career field just based on avoiding math. Besides being limiting, it could drive you to a field you don’t like. Better to face the math demons than to hide from them and risk having ending up in a profession you don’t like for the next 40 years.


Best of luck xx

I don't do any art subjects at A-level so those ones aren't an option. I'm not interested in those subjects anyway.
Social studies degrees seemed interesting so maybe :^_^:

That's true, I can deal with maths just not the super complicated stuff. I wouldn't mind jobs involving maths as long as it wasn't the entire job.

Thanks for answering
