The decision depends a fair bit on what you want to do after you graduate. If you’d like to be a starving artist or hustling freelancer, then you’d presumably choose a different degree than if you want financial security or lots of international travel. A degree is primarily a certification, not an end in itself.
Many of the articles I’ve read about people unhappy about how much money they earn are written by people with degrees or MFAs in creative writing. If you genuinely don’t care about how much money you’ll make, then creative writing may be ideal. However, I question whether creative writing will get you into a financially stable field after you graduate (if that’s what you want).
