Alternatively, enroll in an honours program. If you don't like it, switch down to a general degree. I think either way, you shouldn't have too much of a problem switching your program, considering the requirements for an Arts program generally aren't going to be ultra-competitive.



Most Poli Sci degrees require some English courses.

Even after that, he'll have electives to pursue other interests (like English), or if he really wanted, he could minor or do a double major.

I would just point out that an English program is very heavy on reading. Some of my friends have to go through a novel a week for their courses.
Thank you. Very good information
