Majoring with a BS in Computer Science is better if you want a more technical job. If you want a job that’s more creative, then pursuing a BS may be better for you. However, obtaining a BS still allows you to qualify for more creative jobs, especially if you pursue experience in more creative projects that you may add to your resume.
