I am a student majoring in music , but after seeing the economic situation of today , and seeing that on the list the Arts are usually the firsts to go, in such a crisis , I have concerns about my financial future. Thus , I am thinking more and more that it would not be a bad idea to do a double major. I would like , though to do something that I still like - even if it is not a burning passion like music.
The other subjects that I really enjoy are :history , astronomy , , literature, psychology, foreign languages. I was among the first in highschool , and now I have a GPA of 3.92, and I made it to the Dean's and President's list for every semester of the academic year I have since starting college.
I know some people here said that the kind of proffession that would allow you to do music in the same time and make some good money would be medicine , or dentristry . But I have no interest in these. And I would also be pretty mizerable doing something like accounting. (No!!Not Accounting!!!.... )
From the list I have ,I am thinking the most of Astronomy. Does it seem like a wise decision to major both in Astronomy and Music? Sciences and maths have never been quite a passion for me , but I do have maths skills , and with the right preparation , I can be pretty good at maths. Also, I was always fascinated with the sky above , with the planets , the stars..
Financially speaking , how rewarding is a proffession in this field? Also , time wise , would a proffession in this field allow me to continue to pursue the most intense of my passions , which is music ?
I am a bit worried about the future , and I would like to take the best decision..
