So, I am going to collage next year and I have pretty much decided that I want to record other people's records for a living - become an audio engineer. My one thing is though, that I know how hard the market is for something like that. So my question is, would it be smarter to actually get a degree in audio engineering, or should I get a degree in music business so that if becoming an engineer falls out, I still have a business degree to fall back on? What does the Pit think?

I think you should learn how to spell "college" correctly before you apply.

If you're looking for a field where you'll usually have work, go into computer tech or independently contracted construction.

Otherwise you're gambling no matter what.

Degree in music business -> Master in business

That will at least make it worth your time.

A degree in business is pretty much worthless if not backed by a Masters I have been told by a lot of business majors and graduates.

Audio Engineering is one of those things unless you know someone going into it your going to be very very disappointed in your degree (and if you have connections your probably don't need a degree).

I'm pretty sure a while back someone made a thread exactly like this, and by exactly I mean they also misspelled college as "collage"

I came in here just to post a picture of a collage of some sort. Way to ruin my plans, asshead.

Because they haven't gone to universality.

Alright, I'll get you started.

You'll have to get your own magazines though. I suggest you try the dentist's office or hospital waiting room.
