    Well, I'm almost done with my first year of college (or uni if you prefer ;) ) and i haven't had much success. i was a computer science major, but i've decided that i just don't like it - too much math involved and other things. but i still want to do something with computers. i'm thinking:
    -website design
    -graphics design
    -networking
    -film (something with special effects or similar things)

    but the problem is, i'm not sure what all is entailed with each of these, what major each is under, what jobs are available for each, etc. anybody have any experience with any of these? any other possible suggestions for majors? i'm just having a tough time - not only did i greatly dislike computer science, i also hate my school - i'll be transferring in the fall (not sure where though).

    networking will probably as math heavy or more math heavy than computer science


    the others will have more emphasis on design (say hello to being an art major)

    I tried engineering and found I hated calculus which is why I'm majoring in computer science now

    I was talking about the high end stuff... well, I guess I was thinking electrical engineering... they design all of the kit for it

    What uni you at? I'm doing computer network engineering and there is a LOT of maths, bandwith calculations, throughput god knows what else, then theres all the fibre optic formulae and stuff. I'd say 80% of the modules have maths in them.
