    CS Majors

    What is a good major for CS that is highly sought after in the industry? I'm looking at Networks as I have an interest in setting up and configuring them, but am not sure if it is a good major for the industry.

    Also, how does one declare a major? is there a deadline for declaring my major (e.g. after first year)?

    Thanks

    There really isn't a need to declare a major, you can just have computer science as your major, that way you're not limiting yourself to just networks.

    Sure, if you want.

    I don't see the point in declaring a major in CS to be honest. You can just study the same courses you would study for the major. I can't see it making a noticeable difference for employment either.
