I'm about to get my A.A.S. in Computer forensics and my school offers the BAS for it as well. Do you guys suggest that I continue to get the BAS or possibly major in something else like Criminal Justice or an related IT so I more possible options when I graduate. So I'd have a BAS in whatever and then my A.A.S. in Computer forensics. Note: I've really enjoyed studying the field of Computer forensics and it really interests me but do you guys suggest going this route because of the job market?

Thanks

In short, you will want a Bachelors degree no matter what. A degree in CS will likely provide a better path to a forensic job than a CJ degree.

I'm noticing more and more computer forensic positions requiring a bachelor's degree in computer forensics, so if you're career path will focus on that, I would highly recommend you pursue it. Sometimes a bachelors degree in computer science will suffice, but it usually comes with the requirement of experience and/or certifications.
