Pursuing Airline pilot career

So to give you an idea of where I currently am, I’m 18, a senior in high school, and just got my private pilots license. I don’t know where to go from here, currently applying to colleges because I was told that airlines won’t hire unless you have a bachelors degree. I’m also planning on getting a degree in something else besides aviation that I would enjoy doing as a career just in case something goes wrong medically in he future. I wanna become an airline pilot for a major airline like Delta, Southwest, etc. I would really appreciate advice
