Hello! I know that this is another question that is really down to me to decide, but I was looking for some insight from people that are/have studied these degrees. I like that they both have a strong human connection. I think that architecture seems obviously more practical and grounded, which I needed in order to be connected and not get pulled away from the purpose of things. Philosophy and religion is also incredibly useful in a less concrete way, but I don't know how far that would take me in terms of actually having many freedoms outside of the course. What was your experience in a very simple primary way when studying them? I obviously want to choose what makes me feel curious and not dead inside- I can see how both could go either way. I know that it's also very much down to which course and which university, so please tell me of an positive experiences. Thank you so much.

Warning - Philosophy at degree level can seem like doing a maths degree. In either year 1 or 2, you'll do logic and notation. Philosophy at A Level is lovely though.

this depends on the university, i’ll be studying philosophy & ethics with law, and my course doesn’t focus on mathematics at all. sure it involves some logic, but philosophy is all about logic, so i’m not sure what point you’re trying to make. best to view philosophy degrees and decide which uni offers a course best suited for you

This grossly overstates the emphasis on propositional or symbolic logic that the vast majority of universities have. Most undergraduates will do a single unit in year 1.
