Is Going to College for the Arts Worth It?

By Ben Mascioli

When applying to college, many kids want to major in something like engineering or education, but what if you are someone that isn’t interested in those majors? What if you are interested in the arts, music, or dance? Is it okay to major in those things?

Well… it depends.

I believe that If you have the passion AND the drive to pursue one of those majors, then you absolutely should. Enjoy your life to the fullest, but make sure you do it smart. You cannot go into these majors expecting to get away with no work. If you are going into the arts for college, you have to be prepared to work twice as hard as you did in high school.

From my point of view, it is a great idea. Passion, drive, and the love of the arts will get you far if you put your mind to it.
