Value of the MCIT degree at Penn?
I studied Sociology as an undergraduate and have had a horrible time with the job market. A big problem for me is that I have borderline aspergers and very poor social skills. I have some GIS experience, and have begun to become interested in the programming side of things. I have a romanticized image of working for a tech startup or one of the big GIS companies some day as a programmer.
Would this degree get me there? does it carry the same weight as a true "CS" degree or would it be a waste of time and money? As someone on the outside of this industry, I'm having trouble figuring out to what extent its a CS degree and to what extent it's an IS degree.
