Thankful for the "Getting Started" forum, has really helped me out a lot. But not hearing a ton of information on CS vs MIS for undergrad students.

At my school MIS is short for Management Information Systems. The program here offers a lot more cs related courses than business administration versus other public uni's.

Freshman at an out-of-state university, planning on graduating with an MIS degree and a computer science minor. Will majoring in MIS and not computer science set me backwards? My plan is to gain experience by working a MIS related field, while doing an online graduate program to get my masters in digital forensics. I've spoken to reps at Champlain College in Vermont, thinking about doing my graduate classes there.

Plus studying for certs then, dont know what ones yet but I have some time to think about it.

I changed from CS to MIS because I didnt enjoy programming as much as I thought I would. I will be retaking the programming class next year and if I like it the second time around, I'll think about switching back to CS, just dont want to have to extend my graduation date.

Eventual goal is to work in the law enforcement side of digital forensics.

So, will MIS do me harm rather than good? Will majoring in MIS and not CS prohibit me from working in the LE side of digital forensics?
