Should I do theater or something more stable?
I am a Freshmen and I am starting to think about what I want to major in. I love to do musical theater and want to major in it, but I know that it is very competitive, so I am worried that I am not talented enough. Also, it's not the most stable career path, so should I do something more profitable and secure instead? #theater #musicaltheater #theatre #preformingarts #career-paths
It is like people aiming for a professional athlete job in NBA, NFL, and others where many have done well in College but hardly make it in these leagues.
I suggest keep Theater as your passion, but get a 4-year degree in business such as Marketing, if you have people skills, you will do well. This is not the only path you can take but it is one of them.
Know your strengths, is it writing (are you good in English), is it Math (try engineering), or any other subject that you are passionate about.
I tell my children "if you enjoy what you do, you will never ever work in your life".
Find your passion and go for it. But remember, find something that you can put food on the table. You do not want to rely on your parents in their golden years.
All the best.
