Specifically the informatics major. I searched this forum and I can't find anything about the informatics major specifically.
I know there is a "cognate" specialty you can go into and my interests include business and biology.
What exactly can I do with a BS in Informatics though? Is it basically a girl version of computer science (not my words, I read this from various sources)?
I know bioinformatics is a hot field right now and I would like to go into that.
Does the informatics degree provide job security? I checked the employment stats for SOIC and they said 78% of their grads last year went onto grad school or got a full time job and 9 months later 90% of their grads were in grad school or got a full time job.
