That’s the difference between “computer science” and “computer information systems”.

In “computer science” you take calculus and discrete structures so that if someone asks you whether that sort algorithm is the correct one, you can show them the mathematical proof that it is.

In “computer information systems”, you take business math so that if someone asks you whether the sort algorithm is the correct one, you shrug your shoulders and tell them that the software they need is within their departmental budget.

Most “computer science” people either end up in hardware or software development. Most “computer information systems” people end up in the data center actually running the computers. That’s where I work. The company I work for pays me a very, fair salary.

    I am in communications/(print journalism), and I want a job where I would just have to write, not do all this other junk like reporting

    if you want a computer related job dont go for a 4 yr degree!!!

    start off with A plus certification then net plus

    after those two start figuring out what you want to do
    i.e. networking type work? or maybe support type stuff

    after you answer that q check out the
    microsoft,Comptia,IBM,Cisco certifications

    you can make just as much money with a few of these thean a 4 yr degree

    and get this all it is is a few tests

    if you need a prep course your local community college prob offers one.. and heres the kiker.. you will not have to write some lame ass report on the myan civilization since you will not have to take no history class’s:)
