Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
In January I decided to go back to school, a decision I'm very happy I made, but now I've come across a bit of a cross roads, and I'm hoping y'all can help me make an informed choice.
I'm currently set up as a pre-major for Computer Science, but I'm not sure that that's what I want to do with myself. It's always kind of been my fall back, since I know I could do it, and I don't hate it. I see people who have code in their blood, and listen to them talk, only to find myself without nearly the passion they have.
But I honestly take more enjoyment from artsy stuff, design, drawing, stuff like that. My plan has always been to keep that a hobby, and move forward with computers, but I'm thinking it may be a better idea, to change over to a Graphic Design major.
So my question is, are there Graphic Design jobs, or is that a crapshoot degree? I have no doubt that I'd probably be more versatile with a Computer Science degree, but I don't know that I'd be happy that way. A plus of course would be that I have some credits that would count more towards and art degree than it would an engineering degree, so I could actually probably graduate a semester earlier (or at least closer to on time than my current path).
tl;dr I'm currently a Comp Sci major, but I think I'd be happier pursuing Graphic Design, is this a mistake?
