    Can anyone tell me what are the fields one can enter after doing Bachelor of Fine Arts under the visual communications specialisation. I mean, can I earn good money if I pursue this degree?

    Sorry for the late reply -- I know many people who are in wildly unrelated careers to their degree. Simply having a degree will unlock many many doors that you would not expect, and I no longer think of degrees as being a straight line to a specific career for the vast majority. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies myself, and now I run a web development company and do a lot of heavy-duty programming (which I turn out to love, go figure.)

    Not having a BFA, I'm not sure how to advise you specifically. Does your school have a guidance center? They will often keep a record of what their graduates went on to do, and sometimes their average income 1 to 10 years after graduation -- you could go ask them what people from your department have done with themselves historically! :)
