If you plan on pursuing something within studio arts as a career, be prepared to learn to stretch every dollar and have a very solid financial background or support system. Starting salaries are in fact low. However, something like graphic arts is more financially stable with a more obvious career path.
I would suggest you pair an arts degree with something more technical. For example, maybe you have an informational sciences major, and a studio minor. There are several brilliant contemporary artist who use technology as a partner in creation, and base their work on patterns found in information. In addition, a deeper understanding of computers, both practically and theoretically will make you more a better candidate on the job market and could inspire your next brilliant piece! That's just an idea though. Dig deep and think about what inspires you, brings you joy, and how you want to spend your time. You'll find your pairing there.
That being said, having a college degree is important so study whatever you need to stay engaged and get through the program.
You can literally major or minor in anything, but how broad your skillset is rests upon how much you love learning.
Again, I'll cite it'll depend on a specific path you set for yourself. For example, maybe you major in film, but have a keen interest in art history; someday you become a documentary filmmaker who likes posting art restoration videos. I once knew someone who majored in computer science, and she ended up working as a lighting director at Industrial Light and Magic. She has since gone back into medical school. The point being, she didn't even major in art, but ended up working in film anyway.
It's not as hard as you think to double-major -- often there are classes that are required for both degrees (people rarely end up with so little overlap as I had).
Go for what you love! Twice!
Referencing Renee's answer, you can always minor in a more "practical" area, but my suggestion is to select a major that you truly love to study!
