Business/Computer Science Electives Await!
January 5th, 2017


Are your students prepared for future college courses and careers? Encourage them to sign up for interesting and practical electives within the Business and Computer Science Department when registering for next year’s classes. Computer science allows students to be creators in our digital economy, not just consumers. They can use computing to help people, to solve problems, and to be creative. At the class meetings in February they will hear more specifics to help them choose what is best for them and more detailed information is in the course catalog. Also, remember AP Computer Science and AP Computer Science Principles will count as a fourth year of Science.

The United States Department of Labor predicts computing jobs to be among the fastest growing through 2020. They expect there to be over 1.4 million jobs in the U. S. in this field by 2020, but only expect U. S. colleges and universities to graduate enough people to fill less than half of those jobs. Students who graduate with a computer science degree have the highest starting salary of any undergraduate degree. Also, one fifth of students major in Business in college therefore it would be great to have an advantage by taking one or more of the courses in high school.
