Why study more than one subject?
Combine your favourites
If you love two subjects and don't want to choose between them you don't have to.
Interested in climate change both from the physical evidence and the events that have caused it? Combine Archaeology and History.
How about the way language has developed and the values it communicates? Study both English and Philosophy.
Mix old with new
You may love one subject but want to explore something else as well.
If you already love ancient Greek and Rome but want to explore their physical remains as well try Classical Civilisation and Archaeology.
Or if American politics and culture already fascinates you but you want to explore film and television alongside it's an option.
Develop broad skills
Most graduate employers are interested in your skills more than your subject knowledge.
They want people who:
- are flexible
- are able to look at problems from different angles
- can manage multiple priorities
- appreciate complexity.
Studying more than one subject helps to demonstrate this.
