Imagine that you are a college student interested in computers, but you are confused about your course of study. You aren't sure what direction you should take or what career you might be interested in pursuing after you get your degree. You don't even know what your options are or how they match your interests. Do you want to be a programmer? A Web master? A graphic designer? A database manager?

Most colleges and universities offer a wide range of majors, specializations, and courses of study within the general fields of computer and information sciences. While many of these programs overlap in some respects, they have specific curricula designed to lead to particular careers. Major Choices in Computer and Information Sciences can guide students interested in working with computers to choose the major or specialization that is right for them, as well as get them thinking about the kinds of careers they want to pursue. This entry into the Major Choices series helps students match their interests to the following majors/career paths:

  • Computer Programming
  • Network Administration
  • Database Management
  • Computer Engineering
  • Information Sciences
  • Computer Systems Management and Analysis
  • Web Design and Development
  • Computer Graphics

From there, students use their assessment scores to explore the majors and specializations that best match their interests and the kinds of careers those majors lead to.
