My story is exactly the same. I’m studying arts and humanities, which gives me insights I wouldn’t be able to come up with if I studied computer science or something. I put everything into broader context.

I studied computer science for one semester, but i felt unfulfilled and quickly gave up and switched to humanities. I wasn’t interested in becoming overspecialized in single field but otherwise undereducated. I still study and work as developer — and I think it’s the perfect match. In fact, it is only because i’m developer I have enough free time and resources to do so (greek scholé, after all, means free time)
