Lara’s Answer

Hey, the good news is that you do not need any university degree to become a YouTuber. However I'm not sure I want to recommend you to choose YouTube as a career, because it can be financially unstable. It's definitely a fun and creative way to engage with an online community, show your skills, and potentially make some/good money after a while. There are a whole bunch of teenager YouTubers, so you can start right away - if you haven't already. It takes some time and practice to establish an online presence with decent followers and views so the sooner you start, the better. (Talk to your parents about your plans, though.)

If you are serious about fostering a YouTube or Gamer career with a higher degree you can look into online media, communications, or marketing degrees. If you are interested in the technology behind video games, you can look into careers like game design, software/game development and engineering. You can even become a games tester and play video games for a living, while helping to improve and debug them. Whatever you decide it's awesome that you think about your professional future at this young age! :)

Lara recommends the following next steps:

There are many different job related to video games, it does not have to be Youtube. Do some online research about career options and required degrees.
If you want to start a Youtube channel, do it now and learn by doing. No degree required.
Thank you comment icon If you wanted to be a Youtube Gamer, I would maybe suggest getting a Degree in business. After all, You'd be self employed in a sense. I think having the acumen to understand how business works, and understand how to be profitable would help. I believe a degree in Business could potentially help with that. Thomas Caraccia
