My Name is Donald, and I currently go to School at IUS, I am new too this Forum but I did do my best to search for this topic before posting.
Basically I have to choose before the end of this Semester what degree to go in. Over the last few years i have done as much research as i could, and the end result is a Computer Science Degree, Now here is my problem, I do not know what option to Choose.
Currently my School offers two options,
Computer Science- Information Systems option
Computer Science - Math/Science Option
Now my question is which one would be best, after reading a few forum topics on here it seems most people prefer a CS degree over a CIS degree, which is fine, but what is the difference between the CIS degree and the CS information systems option degree.
Some of the major arguments i have heard is the CIS degree doesn't offer the same programming classes as the CS degree, however the CS information option has the exact programming classes that the CS math/science option has.
So im coming to you for help,
The main reason im asking, is my Math is not very strong, Im not going to lie, the information systems option looks appealing bc it is 3 less math classes, however if it is the better degree i would work harder in this subject....but does it really matter? Is a CS degree a CS degree. Or are they different.
Here is a Link to the degree requirements for both options:
i also would like to go for my masters (offered at IUB) but it depends on how i feel once i get my Bachelors.
Please help :)
