I'm very interested in pursuing a publishing career in the future but have heard conflicting opinions regarding how to get into the industry. I'll be starting my degree in Economics & Politics at Durham in October, but have heard that an English degree is the way to go if you want to pursue publishing... Does anyone know whether I would have any difficulty finding a job in publishing with a degree in economics? Would it be a good idea to consider studying English in the future (I'm open to doing a second degree), or are there other realistic routes into publishing?
Many thanks for any tips...!

It doesn't really matter. Most people in publishing have English degrees, but work experience is more important.
You can do what I'm doing... an MA in publishing.
