i would liek pursue a career in aviation, please give your opinions?

i am currently in the last year of school . i would like to become a commercial pilot . but i've recently had doubts of the scope that the aviation industry would have in the next ten yrs(which presume would be the average time for me to get a cpl). is it a good idea to get a degree in aviation as soon as i am done with school . should i opt for another alternative degree before gettin into aviation , incase i don't make it out as a pilot? what other courses would be ideal to secure a job.
