Computer Studies


    Most of us have a vague idea that knowledge of computer science will help you get a job, but the actual numbers are pretty shocking:
    • New programming jobs are growing 3 times faster than the number of students entering the field.
    • More than 50 percent of all math and science jobs are for computer scientists.
    • Computer science jobs are the highest-paying jobs for new graduates.
    Software powers our economy, but, less than 2.4 percent of college students graduate with a CS degree. That means there aren’t going to be enough graduates to fill the jobs.

    “I think if someone had told me that software is really about humanity; that it’s really about helping people by using computer technology; it would have changed my outlook a lot earlier.” - Vanessa Hurst, founded Developers for Good
