Why study more than one subject?

Keep your passions alive

 

If you love two subjects and don't want to choose between them you don't have to.

English and History? French and German? Philosophy and Theology? You can pair these up and more.

Something old, something new

 

You may love one subject but want to explore something else as well.

If you already love the Classical world but want to explore its physical remains as well you can.

Or if American politics and culture already fascinates you but you want to explore film and television alongside it's an option.

One theme, different perspectives

 

All issues have different sides to examine.

Interested in climate change both from the physical record and the events that have caused it? Try Archaeology and History.

How about the way language has developed and the values it communicates? Combine English and Philosophy.

Career opportunities

 

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 muliple priorities
  • appreciate complexity. 

Studying more than one subject helps to demonstrate this.
