I think I’m going to end up in the same boat. I’m heading off to Ohio University next fall, and I think that I’m going to have to double major – in Video Production which I love – and in Computer Information Systems, to ensure that I can find a steady job.
I realize this is a little late but the advice still holds.
I do video as a hobby (just getting off the ground as a side business now) and have been paying the bills as a programmer for 31 years (paid quite well including now) however, I would NOT recommend CIS, IT, MIS or anything like that as a future ocupation. I have seen hundreds (literally) of co-workers and friends lose their IT based jobs over the past 7 years – It really is not where I’d put my energy right now. If you can do EE or something like that there may be a future (but that too may go the way of the programmer – lower salaries, fewer jobs, moving offshore).
