Computer science is the major of the future

Choosing a college major is an important decision for incoming freshmen. With so many choices available, it can be difficult to find the right field of study. But there is one major that all college students should consider: computer science. Computer science has a very bright future.

The computer science major needs students. According to Code.org, less than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science, and the numbers are declining. Additionally, there will be one million more jobs than computer science students by the year 2020. So graduating with a computer science degree almost guarantees a job somewhere.

Companies already realize the demand for these students. Computer science tops all majors for getting job offers before graduation. More than 66% of computer science graduates received at least one job offer before graduating from college.

Working in the technology industry is also exciting and fun. Companies like Google and Yahoo! offer fun work environments. The opportunity to create the next Facebook or Twitter is another reason to study computer science.

Computer science is a field that needs students. It is also a field that the technology industry needs. The challenge is to convince students to choose computer science, or at the very least, consider it.
