Is a graphic design degree with a concentration in marketing better than just a graphic design degree?

Hi! I am a freshman at a community college currently and am trying to decide on a major for when I transfer to a four-year college. The Graphic design degree with marketing has more marketing classes of course. I am curious if that would boost my job availability or not so much. I enjoy the art side of graphic design and love to write so I am wondering if the marketing concentration would be beneficial.

What do Graphic Designers do as a career?

I'm a freshman in high school. If I'm being honest, I'm just doing this for an assignment. But I am curious about this career since I'm a developing artist. I like doing more digital art though. Is it a recommended career for artists? Digital artists? Or just anyone who have creative minds?

How do I get started as an illustrator/graphic designer?

Hi! I'm a lifelong artist currently recovering from my engineering day job and the toll it's taken on my mental health. (Mechanical Engineering grad, 2-ish years into my career). I've finally gotten to a point where I'm ready to take the plunge and look for a more creative career. I'm totally lost on where to go from there, though. I would absolutely love to illustrate books but I don't think I'm ready to fully shift to freelance work. What other career options should I explore that are similar but a little more stable? (And ideally include healthcare, lol) What programs/certifications should I prioritize? What should I include in my portfolio? Thanks in advance :) please feel free to leave any other advice you have for me!

What career should I focus on?

I have doubts if I want to build a career as a digital artist or as a graphic designer. If I can't choose what career I want to pursue in life, should I pick what I love doing or the one that is the most profitable and in demand? I did some research and I think nowadays there's more demand for graphic designers than artists. Digital art is a market more saturated than graphic design. There is also to consider all the problems related to AI platforms like Midjourney or DALL-E. This makes me think that, even if I like drawing, maybe it's not a profitable business like it was in the past. So I'm scared to take this risk. However having these thoughts, I can't commit to anything and I keep procrastinating because I'm too scared to take action. Do you know something that could help me choose? Do you have any advice to give to stop this problem? I've tried doing both these past months, but I noticed that I couldn't. My plan was to study graphic design in the morning and practice drawing in the afternoon, but it was too much to handle for me. I had no energy left in the afternoon or I had other personal tasks to do. After doing this for some weeks, I started waking up tired and some days I skipped my morning routine. I was also exhausted about switching topics to learn everyday. That's why I suppose I need to choose one and stick with it. Do you have any advice to suggest? What do you think I should do?

What is the nature of working in Motion Design?

I held an interest in animation before Tech. I stumbled upon Motion Design. Motion Design plays a key role in online product design, from what I understand. I notice they create work in After Effects for advertisements or brands that rely on visual communication (Thinking of companies that make YouTube videos sometimes, or commercials for educational purposes). What is the day-today of working in Motion Design? Anything helpful to know about the field? Any Motion Designers or professionals in adjacent fields (Graphic Design, Product Design), I'd love to hear from you.

Is it worth it getting an associates in illustration?

I am a high school student who is working on getting my bachelors in communications integrated with media management through dual enrollment. Since I will be graduating college two years early, I am trying to think about more schooling options. I love art and I think illustration will pair well with my major. I was thinking I could get my associates in illustration online after I get my bachelors so I can get a more artistic and creative job. Would this be a good option or should I look at something else?

is it possible to get two more minors after I graduate college?

I am majoring in communications integrated media management. I have a required minor that will either be marketing or psychology. I am also required to take several art classes and two graphic design classes. I think it would be useful to gain a minor in graphic design and a minor in photography after I graduate. I feel like both would elevate my marketability. Would this be a good route or is there a better way to this?
