So, I'm going into my 3rd year at Boston University, with a graphic design major. The only other majors they offer are sculpture, art education, and painting - and although I'm an alright painter, it's not my greatest thing yet (I'm practicing like crazy).
My issue here is that, it's only been within the past semester that I realised concept art is the direction I want to go in. I had no idea that such a field existed, and had I known earlier I would have planned ahead better.
So now I'm stuck at my school, because I can't afford to switch anywhere else - and I'm going to end up with a graphic design degree. But what I'm best at is illustration + drawing, and I don't want to spend my life designing business cards.
Is there any way at all that I can make a graphic design degree work to my advantage? Is there additional schooling I should look into for after my first 4 college years? I've been trying to do as much research as possible for this field, but I'm a bit overwhelmed. Just need to know if anyone has any particular advice.
