Careers in technology are more than just computer science. DePaul CDM has degrees that are tailored to a variety of interests.
If you enjoy mathematics, working independently, and handling details, a more technical career path such as computer science, computer information and network security, or software engineering might be right for you.
If you have strong analytical skills, tend to envision the "bigger picture" and enjoy working on teams, an organizationally-oriented career path such as IT project management, information systems or interactive media/human-computer interaction may be more appropriate.
If you are more creatively inclined, a media arts career in digital cinema, graphics and motion technology or computer game development may be of interest to you.
The Your Career section details the tech industry's outlook, lists prospective employers of DePaul graduates, and links to other career resources that can help you land that perfect job no matter where you stand in your career path.
