Hey there everyone. I've come to a bit of a fork in the road when it comes to my university degree and I'd really appreciate some advice. I've just started my 2nd year at Deakin University, Australia.
I'm currently doing a Bachelor of Information Technology, with a major in Game Design
. From what I've heard, this is seen as a 'soft' major even in the industry and I would be better served doing a Computer Science
Changing to Computer Science at this point would involve a bit of extra work, and would mean I would have to abandon the more artistic and creative elements of my current degree. Unfortunatly, those are the bits I enjoy the most.
As far as I can see it, I have 3 options:
1. Keep my major as it is. Would I be at an immediate disadvantage over other job applicants to a games company?
2. Change to Computer Science, have less fun in my degree, it may take a bit longer to finish, but I will have more to fall back on.
3. Graduate without a major, which would require no change in my course, nor any catchup subjects. Would a plain BIT be better than one with the Game Design major attached?
Any insight into this problem would be greatly appreciated.
