Can I pursue a career with CS minor? Please help!
Hi I’m currently a history major in UC Riverside that has no idea what career I’m going to be pursuing after graduating this year so I was thinking about minoring in computer science and maybe pursuing a career out of it.
I heard that most jobs in IT dont really REQUIRE a BS degree in CS and is more likely to look for experience and knowledge so I was thinking if I graduate with a minor in CS, it will at least give me enough knowledge to get into entry level jobs and gain experience which then will allow me to be able to apply and work for bigger companies later on down the road.
But now I’m also worried about the pay of these entry level jobs and how long it will take me to reach a decent salary based IT job without a degree in CS.
Anyone that didnt major in CS that has a career in the field, please help
