I'm a sophomore in a community college and I would like advice regarding which career path/college degree is the best.
My original major was accounting, but after taking an introductory course in Java, I came to like programming. So I decided to switch my major to something that's related to computer. The computer program that my school offer is Computing, Electronics, and Networking Technology (CENT). The highest degree I can get if I choose to stay in the CENT program is a Bachelor's degree in Applied Science (BAS). I unfamiliar with the BAS degree, so I don't know if this degree will get me job interviews in the future.
While I like programming, I also like the computing and networking courses that I'm taking; I like these courses because they are hand-on work.
Since I like programming, my friend advised me to pursue a BS degree in Computer Science because I can do a lot more with a BS degree in computer science than a Bachelor's degree in Applied Science. Now, I'm conflicted between the two degree options.
If I go with computer science, where do I start? I have little experience with computer and programming. The only programming courses that I have taken are introductory courses in Java, Python, and HTML.
I truly appreciate any advice you can give me to help me choose the best college degree for myself. Thank you!
