Both the sectors are different from one another. There is no comparison between these two lines ( Animation & Multimedia or Psychology ). As a personal interest I would suggest you to do Animation & Multimedia course from any institute either it is govt. or private. Animation is only the industry which gives you many employment opportunities in various sectors such as 2D Animator, 3D Animator, VFX Artist, Background Artist, Layout Artist, Rigging Artist, Texturing Artist, Compositor, Pre and Post Production and many more. But in any other course, you can only able to join a particular field. As take an example related to this context, a medical field is only opens for medical student & an engineer field is only for engineer students. Animation is only the field which is open for all the students with any stream background either it is science/commerce or arts from any recognized board.
