I'm in my junior year of college. Currently a computer science major and hate it! I decided my major late so as a computer science major i have about 2-3 years left. I'm considering dropping my major, finishing my liberal arts (5 classes left for me), getting my associates degree, graduating next year and moving on out of college. What do you guys think? Is it a good idea?
Hating on what you're studying doesn't do you any good, you'll start getting annoyed about the classes and ending up with a bad grade, set aside hating your job later on. My 2 cent would be to proceed with the latter choice.
Don't let time discourage you - liberal arts degrees are one of the most common degrees they hand out just to make sure you leave college with a degree. It's barely better than nothing.
Computer science is for the most part where the jobs and future is heading. So even if it takes longer you're going to be going into a steady, reliable, better paying job.
Realizing liberal arts or whatever is a bad choice is a mature decision, even if it takes you longer.
In my introduction to programming class there is a girl with a bachelor in psychology - taking community college courses because it's another worthless degree
Stay in school and finish a STEM degree
>this one person I know doing this one thing means all people like her must be doing that thing
Pretty sure that's a fallacy
Also OP, get the fuck out of CS. There's no point in doing it if you don't like it. You won't make 80k+ out the gate because those jobs are reserved almost exclusively for people that enjoy CS and have an extensive portfolio of CS extracurriculars and hobby projects. If you're lucky you'll start at 40k doing some web dev or Python shit.
Nonsense. I have my degree in psychology and I have never been without work in my field for 13 years. I will say that a lot of this degree depends on where you live and what population you want to work with.
