What subjects do you study when you major in Computer Science?
Posted on 2014-08-21
I looked over the curriculum at one university, and I'm confused. Do you study programming languages? If so, which ones? Please describe in detail what is studied.
Also, with all the "app" programming popularity for phones, is this covered in a B.S. in CS, or is this a separate study?
I am an older person looking/needing a career change. Unfortunately, my degree is in Music, but it didn't matter most of my life because I worked in the family jewelry manufacturing business. I also took some courses in programming, such as Assembler, Cobol, etc. However, I have no actual job experience with them, and things sure have changed.
What can an older person study to make them "attractive" to employers? Thanks in advance.
