I’m a ways through college and at the point where I need to finalize a major, and yet I feel as lost as when I started.
I like reading and want to write fictional books in the future and am working on some now. I also love history and researching it. Along with writing books, I really want to create an animation series about some of the most important figures and events in history.
I have been planning for awhile to major in journalism or history, but have been reconsidering this. I don’t really want to do journalism just because it will help me work on writing, I don’t exactly like the field. And I don’t really like any other writing majors like English, which I believe make you a worse writer by telling you what to write, not how. As for history, I am starting to feel that it’s more of a hobby, not something to major in. I feel it’s better to learn a skill that can pay the bills, and was looking into stem fields. I was wondering if there is anything in this category (or any other) that has a major that can fit back to my interests. I like computers, and have been thinking of trying a computer science class this fall. Would this be something that could help me with my animation series goal? Are there any other majors that would? All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
