DeVry's CIS program w/ CF emphasis

Post Posted: Jan 03, 07 00:07

I'm student at DeVry Online. I need to decide on a major very soon. I'm thinking about their CIS program, which offers an emphasis in CF. But I'm not sure whether the program will actually help me land that crucial entry-level job with a CF-type company. Below are the 4 CF courses. What do you think? Should I go for broke, take these courses, and hope for the best, or should I take what may be a safer route and choose a different emphasis (e.g. Infosec), with the intention of entering the CF field from there later? Please offer your valuable opinion.
