Why should I study Computer Science?
In essence: a strong resilient demand for jobs, high salary, and a stable, challenging, and engaging career.
But I heard that I can make more money in other careers. If I will get so little reward from it, why should I bother? What are the reasons I should study Computer Science?
In essence: high salary and a stable, challenging, and engaging career.
How high of a starting salary can I get?
In short, as a Computer Scientist, you will be able to demand a relatively high salary throughout your entire career.
But, I actually heard that it is hard to get a job in Computer Science. Is that true?
As a Computer Scientist, your prospects for finding a job are very good, and a significant majority of graduates in Computer Science have a job in their field soon after graduation.
OK, but I heard that Computer Science jobs are boring and lonely – that only introverts get jobs in Computer Science. Is it true that Computer Science is only for introverts?
In reality, Computer Science jobs are interesting and challenging, and require people with strong soft skills and a large degree of imagination and creativity.
But, what are my prospects for a career?
Computer Scientists work in many areas and the job market has been relatively stable in that there is strong demand for people to fill computing jobs, but a significant shortfall of qualified people to fill those jobs.
Great. But, besides salary, will my career be rewarding?
A career as a Computer Scientist is both rewarding and challenging, requiring creativity and intuition in addition to strong technical skills.
So maybe I should pursue a career in Computer Science. Why should I study Computer Science at Lindenwood University?
The Computer Science faculty at Lindenwood University have expertise in many subfields of Computer Science, and are student focused with an emphasis on student success.
