Any reason you can't do both? I did both as an undergrad and my first time through as grad student, in theory, you might double your career opportunities. I only know about the American scholarly job market and that mainly through word of mouth, its not very good for people in either field but not impossible either, just need to be the right person at the right time. -- Brad Coon (Conlang pgs.)
