    To all of you smart college graduates, some advice

    What's up. I'm going to be starting corporate c training courses in a few months (full 700 hours, and covers everything a typical 4 year comp science degree would in the spectrum of programming)- classes are below if curious:

    But my question is: would I be better getting an associates degree in math afterwards, or getting my associates degree in comp science. The only problem with getting an associates in comp science is that -the school I plan on going to only covers areas in programming that I would've already learned from the corporate training courses(stated above).

    What would you do if you were me? I also plan on getting my b.s. in computer science afterwards, but I'm looking at my associates for now.

    Thanks.

    If you're interested, here's the outlines of the courses:

    BTW, also if you're curious why I'm getting my corporate certification in c, then getting b.s. in comp science afterwards is that I've been out of school for a while, and have been self employed. I'm trying this because I hope that I can get an entry level position, and build up from that. But I also plan on going to school part time as well.

    *just as a side note*

    I would go for the associates degree in math. You can always learn more computer science without going to school. Math concepts are much more difficult to learn without a good professor to help you along.
