I was going to do linguistics, but since there aren't many career options, I decided to combine it with computer science in a program called cognitive science.

Your best options are computational linguist (requires computer science), speech-language pathologist (requires a Masters), translator (requires fluency in another language), and teacher/professor (requires extra training/PhD).

Or you could do something completely unrelated like business or law. My recommendation would be to combine it with something more lucrative and have a plan in place.
