Back-up plan

I want to compose music for video games, movies, commercials, etc. However, this is a very uncertain job as far as stability goes.
I'm heading off to college soon and I plan on majoring in Composition and a minor in music tech at the very least. Any suggestions for a backup plan as far as career choices go that fit within the same area?


PS I'm not interested in being a music teacher, so don't bother mentioning it.

Sucking dick for crack is going to get you much farther in life than sucking it for beer. Have some standards for Christ's sake!

Seriously though, you can't go wrong Business Administration or Information Technology. It's not music related, but when it comes to job security and great pay, those are the fields to go into right now. It's growing fast and there is a high demand for people who know what they are doing. It's not uncommon to get 60k/year for an IT SysAdmin right off the bat.
