Question by blahh: Should I major in what I want, or something more practical?
My dream is to graduate with a double major in Media Production and English and open up a film production company. However, I realize that opening a business is a major risk, even more so in this economy. I’m not rich, so I’d have to take out loans to fund the company and if the company fails, I’m basically SOL. Plus, degrees in English and Media Production aren’t very marketable.
I’m considering some majors such as Clinical Lab Science, Secondary English Education, Computer Science, Nursing, and Construction Management. These majors are MUCH more likely to land me a good paying job. However, most of these are more science/math related or at least require a lot of it and I hate math. Science I can deal with depending on the subject. But I’m more of a humanities/arts/creative type of person so I’m afraid these majors, though they will give me good money, are something I’d get burnt out on and I don’t want to spend my life doing what I hate.
What do you think?
Stick with the major I’m passionate about even though it won’t get me a job, or do a major that I’m not as interested in but will make me money?
