Without a doubt, IT is one of the most in-demand career fields out there. You just have to make a search in one of the many available job search engines, and you'd get a hundred or so results about jobs related to IT. So, if you're still thinking of what course to take in college, then why not try getting something that's IT-related? At least, you'll know you won't have a hard time looking for a job after you graduate. However, if you already have something set in your mind, then you better go with it then. :)
If you want to know more about IT, you only have to search the internet and the information's already available and ready for your perusal. Research on animation or ITIL Resources and see if they interest you. Personally, I don't know much about IT (although I've worked for some time in the industry), but I know that it's a very promising career for young professionals!
