Here is my situation:
I will have an associates degree in computer networking at the end of the summer. I already have a few 4 year schools in sight (think I already have one picked out). My long term goal is to work in security on an international level. From what I can see, I think I would greatly benefit from being able to program. I don't want to just use security programs, I want to be able to write them and fully understand what is going on.
So I have narrowed it down between two degrees.
1. Computer Science
2. Information Technology
According to my research, Computer Science is "is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation, and of practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems" (Master Wiki told me)
IT is more implementing existing stuff.
Is that true? I am leaning towards the Computer Science degree.
Thank you for your time
