Torn between 2 majors....

Well... I am a sophomore in college and torn between choosing 1 of 2 majors.

Computer Science or Information Technology.

My financial situation isn't all that great, my parents are helping me out a lot, but they advise me on getting my degree and getting out into the 'real' work field as soon as possible.... which I completely understand.

Sadly, I love learning about computers... every aspect of them. If I had the choice I'd probably stay and take every class this university has to offer hahah, but that's a debt I do not even want to bring into reality.

Alas this is the year I must choose a major/minor and finish up my studies within the next 2-3 years.

Right now my idea is... Major: IT Minor: MIS(management information systems) .... do you think it would be beneficial to add in a minor of Comp Sci?

Just wondering what opinions/thoughts you all had on the degrees and if you had any advice to give through your various experiences.

Sorry for the wall of text

In which country do you plan to do IT / Comp Sc.

In India there is hardly any difference when it comes to real job

Check out the Job Portals for your areas and see if there is something where one Major can apply but not the other. If there is then you should choose the one which has more oppurtunity
