Best Computer Science Double Major?

CompSciMajor00CompSciMajor00 Registered User Posts: 36 Junior Member
I am a computer science student looking to make myself more attractive to employers. I would like to double major, but don't have an idea of a combination that will make me more competitive in the workplace? I was thinking Comp Sci and Business Management, but management doesn't really fit me. I have time to declare because I start my freshman year this fall. Also I have about 30 credits, which would allow me to graduate in four years.

    When you say 30 credits are you talking about AP credits? Or are you talking about CC credits?

    Both. 10 from community college and about 20 from AP. The majority of my AP credit was from previous years, and I scored high enough to receive credit at my university. I took one AP course my senior year, and I am waiting on that result currently.

    You shouldn't have an issue gaining employment as a Comp Sci major unless you are an international candidate, then that would be an issue. The best thing to stand out are the internships and experiences in the corporate world. My dd is always recruiting for her company, and she looks at GPA, internships, and team projects.
