If you really want a degree, you'd probably be best suited to the humanities - history, art, art history, english. ALso, because you're taking English and Spanish, linguistics or reporting might be good.  But remember you're not confined to what you do your degree in - my uncle has a law degree and is currently running a restaurant. An awful lot of business, govt. ect jobs just need a degree, no specification on what type of degree. 

And if you don't want a degree, there's still plenty of options. You're presumably good at language, because ou're taking English and Spanish - if you can afford the time abroad to familiarise yourself, you may want to look into translation + language consultancy. There's also writing - the obvious novel writing, but also copywriting, journalism, ect. It's a 100% achievable to do those things without a degree, you just need to network a bit.

Now, history is a little harder to find fields in, it's more academic. But if you're willing to put the networking in, you could work with writers + film makers to ensure historical accuracy - I don't know what that's called, but it sounds awesome! You'll probably need a degree for that, though, if only to put on the CV.
