Mobile Is Taking Over: The Best Degrees for Future App Developers
By Manda Perkins Published on January 10, 2017
The tech field has been booming since the early 90’s, with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. A job in the tech industry could be an excellent option for anyone looking to secure a good, stable, lucrative career. Regardless of where you are in your schooling, now could be the perfect time to earn your degree in the tech field.
Here are three tech degrees that will give you a leg up on the competition:*
1. Computer Science with a Software and Mobile Applications Development Emphasis (BS)
If you are looking to become an app developer, consider pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a Software and Mobile Applications Development Emphasis. This program offers you real-world experience, teaching you marketable skills that prepare you for the workplace rather than just the theory behind computer science, like most other programs do. By earning this degree, you can help your resume stand out when you apply for a position as an app developer.
2. Web Design and Development (BS)
A Bachelor of Science in Web Design and Development is another excellent degree to learn the general tech information and skills you’ll need to seek a position in the tech field. In addition to teaching skills like mobile app production, this degree also covers a broad curriculum that includes user interface, interactive presentations, and web apps, all of which are helpful in acquiring a job in app development.
3. Computer Science with a Networking and Information Systems Security Emphasis (BS)
Although not as specific to app development as the previous two degrees, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a Networking and Information Systems Security Emphasis is a great degree to consider if you’re looking for a broader base of knowledge in the tech field. Teaching basic skills that are beneficial to a wider range of tech jobs, this degree includes coursework on server administration, database programming, security measures, network communications, and information storage. This degree could help you make yourself more marketable within the tech field in general.
