What Should I Major In?
This is a critical question that must be answered before you choose a college. This is because some schools only offer Computer Engineering, or only offer Computer Science, or only offer Information Systems. At Messiah College, we are fortunate to have all three areas - so you can wait to decide until during your first year.
- Business Information Systems focuses on people. If you like helping others solve problems with their computers or you are able to address system wide problems caused by hardware, software, data or people, Messiah's Information Systems could be a good choice for you.
- Computer Engineering focuses on the hardware. If you like building things and knowing how things work in the physical world, Messiah's Computer Engineering could be a good choice.
- Computer Science focuses on the software. If you like making software, writing computer programs, setting up and running large scale databases, Messiah's Computer Science could be a good choice.
Still having difficulty deciding? Then come to Messiah College for an open house, or just schedule a visit to meet with the professors from any - or all - of these areas. We'd be glad to help as you make your choice.
