Computer Science or Information Technology

By swoll21 ·
I'm a student at Winston Salem State University in North Carolina and I had a couple questions....I want to get into the Network field but I'm not sure which degree to get. To be a network administrator should I get an Computer Science degree or an Information Technology degree? Should I get an CCNA or a network+? What other certifications should I get along with the CCNA or Network+?

The net+ certification shows you have the basic knowledge of network. (What is a router, The OSI layer and what each one does.) This is a good certification for an entry level job. The CCNA is a Cisco certification. Which is for Cisco products. The net+ cost only like $170 so i would start with that. I used a book from Exam Cram to help me out. For which course to take i am not sure what course fall under the degree.

If you really want to go in to the networking field look in to a Network Engineering Degree or atleast a program that has a high exposure to network engineering.
