SUMMARY

Choosing to study Computer and Information Sciences is not only a valuable choice, but naturally a needed first step for students trying to enter a career as a data scientist, a back-end web developer, or an internal business analyst. In fact, computer and information sciences is an extremely popular major choice, ranking as the 17th most popular major. Last academic year, there were 36,674 computer and information sciences diplomas received. In-state tuition for computer and information sciences at private schools is, on average, 3.9 times more pricey than their public counterparts.

With an impressive 878 institutions having programs for this degree odds are that any schools you are considering will have a degree program for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other computer and information sciences majors, consider looking at colleges in Florida which have the most undergraduates admitted to computer and information sciences annually. Zooming out, the best region to study computer and information sciences is in the Southeast region with University of Central Florida, Georgia Institute of Technology-Main Campus, and George Mason University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study computer and information sciences is the Big Ten Conference with Indiana University-Bloomington, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best university for computer and information sciences is Yale University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for you. There are a bunch more angels to consider when deciding on institution. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely impact one's decision on where to go to school. Here at authority.org, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which computer and information sciences college has the best campus, the winner is New York University. If, for example, you are very interested in which college has the finest campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and our selection for the school with the best student life for computer and information sciences is Cornell University. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about Authority's top choices. Many of our decisions will probably surprise you.

If cost is a significant influence in your decisions, you might be cautious about Brown University. Brown University appears to be our most expensive college for computer and information sciences , at least regarding out of state enrollment. We have a page for the most expensive universities that might put the cost of Brown University into perspective. For more context, you might care to know that computer and information sciences is the 50th most expensive program in the nation, with an average cost of $49,200. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for computer and information sciences nationally is Rhode Island at Brown University and University of Rhode Island, the main schools in Rhode Island, of $57,112 and $29,710. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for computer and information sciences is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Vassar College with a cost of $57,910, Bucknell University with a cost of $57,882, and Union College with a cost of $56,853.

Our cheapest region for computer and information sciences is the Southwest region which is represented by Eastern New Mexico University-Main Campus with a cost of $5,994, Oklahoma Panhandle State University with a cost of $4,440, and The University of Texas of the Permian Basin with a cost of $5,767. On the bright side, the most affordable university for computer and information sciences is University of Central Florida. Authority's entire list of the most affordable colleges can be explored here.

In-state learners can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $9,500 for a degree in computer and information sciences . The price balloons dramatically to a median of $21,100 for the out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the school representing the best value for computer and information sciences : Yale University. Through this link you can see our comprehensive list of the colleges we see as being the best value in general. That being said, this discussion is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for computer and information sciences majors can differ, but within two years leaving college students will typically make in the neighborhood of $63,800. While there is a lot of variation in salary; top positions can make up to $103,200. Even right out of college, the minimum earning opportunities within the computer and information sciences field earn $40,100, which could be worse. The top earning graduates from computer and information sciences come from University of Pennsylvania and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of computer and information sciences is pretty high, coming in the 91st percentile of majors nationally. The school with the most composite diversity for computer and information sciences is Carnegie Mellon University and here you can find our general list for the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Computer and Information Sciences ranks only in the 30th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 94th percentile. Students who are not latino, asian, white, or black make up the largest proportion at 38% of scholars majoring in computer and information sciences . Additionally, 75% of scholars seeking a computer and information sciences degree are men.

The median ranking of computer and information sciences professors is 3.8 stars, a ranking that is 5% less than the average score across every major; this is a subpar ranking. If you are interested in the most popular computer and information sciences instructor nationally, consider looking up Kyle Camacho from Southern New Hampshire University. It may surprise you, but the top rated computer and information sciences instructors by student are found at George Mason University. As we including data other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the university with the overall best professors for computer and information sciences is Johns Hopkins University. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest professors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for computer and information sciences is Yale University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we do hope you understand that looking at the education process from context primarily built on superlatives might create problems. We at Authority hope you look at some of our other pages on different schools and peruse some of our helpful background articles on useful details to think about as you continue your school search.
