    Can someone please tell me the similarities and differences between computer science and multimedia?
    Thank you.

    Well first of all multimedia is more of a college course or a joint course. You're more likely to find multimedia with journalism. I'm guessing you're looking at multimedia computing? Cause that's the one most related to computer science.

    It mostly comes down to the specific courses and universities. Check the modules for both online at the universities you like.

    The main difference is that multimedia concentrates more on graphics, video and design. While computer science is more about the programming, networking, security. Stuff like that
