After 10 years working in Telecommunication, I needed a new path for my career. CSU’s computer science program offered me that path. With flexible course schedules both in the classroom and online, I was able to continue working full-time while earning my BA in computer and information sciences. The faculty was extremely knowledgeable of the topics, readily available during office hours and understanding of my work schedule to accommodate my needs. Going back to earn my degree was the right decision for me; I only wish I had done it sooner.
