As the father of a dramatic arts major, I have done some research into this, but my daughter has done significantly more. The degree helps, quite a bit - but what helps more is networking. Get your name out there, sign up and volunteer for every conceivable workshop and internship you can find in the industry. During these internship you'll get noticed by simply knowing what your doing and not needing a ton of supervision. You don't get to walk onto a set and take the reigns, for the most part you'll have to master many of the other jobs and roles: sound, lightning, grip, build - etc. Be willing to do all of the grunt work, it will pay off!
