Computer Information Science Students Can Choose a Specialty

Computer Information Science is a field that covers a broad range of computer-based activities and functions. And while getting a degree in Computer Information Science can help qualify a person for an entry-level position in the IT field, it’s often more valuable to have a lot of knowledge and experience in a single area than it is to have a little knowledge in several.

This is why Everest University Online, a division of Everest University, allows its Computer Information Science Associate in Science degree students to choose one of three specialties when pursuing a degree. In addition to their core courses, Everest’s Computer Information Science students can choose to concentrate on programming, network administration or web design, which can lead to three distinct career paths.

Here’s the difference between the three education/career tracks:

Programming: Students learn the leading “languages” of computer instruction so they can design, implement and modify the tasks computers perform. The Everest University Online courses emphasize programming for modern business applications.

Network Administration: Students who choose this concentration learn how computers interact with one another and how to make computer-to-computer communication as smooth and productive as possible. Again, the emphasis is on business functionality, including how to design a network, add and remove equipment, and troubleshoot common problems.

Web Design: More and more business is being done on the Internet, and this concentration teaches students how to blend artistic form with backend function to create websites that meet the needs of both the owner and the visitor.
