gaming degree versitility

ive recently received my atar and is now weighing up my options. im considering doing a gaming degree at uni but im heard that you cannot do much with it outside the gaming industry. can anyone back this claim?

I would recommend against doing a purely games degree, I got an Art job in a games company after Multimedia Courses, and a couple of years Freelancing at Advertising Industries.

I think I am in a better place then others, as if I loose this job, or simply get bored with it, there are other industries that would still be fun.
