I think studying literature is great for your own entertainment but as a career path...I dunno, best stick with music.

Or if you're serious about it you can be a researcher. Shrugging  One of my friends is that in Trondheim now. I don't think it's all that well paid however.

It can be quite fun. Nod  Nordisk is a lot of language as well, though. Allmenn Litteraturvitenskap just the literature.

And, yeah, I agree. Being a school teacher requires a lot of dedication.

And it's great when you have a good one, like you seem to have.  Nod

Your life is a mess while school is in session, but you get nice vacations.  But yeah, you have to be pretty dedicated to the concept of being a teacher.

Other than teaching there's not much you can do with a literature degree, and I'm not sure it helps or hurts if you plan to become a writer.

At least people will pay to listen to you play or pick up a CD.  How many people will pay for a book of literary analysis?  (Okay, we pay for Tolkien analysis, but that's more for his world than anything else.)

And being a musician is sexy. Being a literary critic? Um...
