He may be an American Idol champion and huge country star, but that doesn’t mean Scotty McCreery has given up on his goal of a well-rounded education. The singer recently began his college journey, enrolling at North Carolina State University. What will he be studying?
With an American Idol victory, a platinum album and a charity tour underway, it’s kinda hard to believe that Scotty McCreery is still a teenager setting out to achieve his big goal of a college degree. But it’s true — the star recently began attending class at North Caroline State University. So far, in addition to the usual generals, the singer is also set on a Communications degree, perhaps with a minor in Public Relations. But he’s also considering a change of major, explaining to Hollywood.com, “I might change that to Media just so I can really see the other side of what I’m doing. I’m personally in the media, but if I can kind of understand the media itself, that would be a cool asset to have.”
No matter his ultimate field of study, Scotty McCreery is sure to be one busy guy these next few months. “I’m up there Monday and Wednesday. I’m squeezing twelve hours into two days. It’s really a packed day. I go from 8 AM to 6 PM. I get it all done in two days.” This setup can’t be easy, but it’s necessary, what with Scotty’s already jam-packed schedule. In addition to classes and homework, the musician also has to fit in a charity concert tour and final touches on his upcoming holiday album. It’s a lot for any teen to handle, but we know that Scotty is more than capable!
