Help: Fort Hays State University (BSCS) or Troy University (BSACS) ????
I need help picking the better program. I am an adult student on a very limited budget. I have spent weeks researching online Universities that offer Computer Science Bachelors degrees that I can afford. Fort Hays State University is my first pick due to cost, but Troy University seems to be a better known and more respected school and only slightly more expensive.
It would be an easy decision if Troy had a BS in Computer Science, but they only offer Applied Computer Science. I was thinking of taking a Math Minor and as many CS classes as possible for my electives to try to make up for the difference in the degrees. If you had to choose between the two and only these two, what would you choose? What do you think the impact would be on future potential employment? I am looking to start classes this fall so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
