Hi people,
I'm in year 12 and looking at Uni Courses, and was wondering, is taking a course that's just Computer Science got any advantage over taking maybe one that is Computer Science and Programming.

I'd like to probably get into programming or even game development as a career. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I don't think that a course named Computer Science and Programming actually exists because programming is a very integral part of a CS course so if you want to go in "programming" in general or "game development", CS would be the way forward imo because it seems that it is seen in brighter light than specific Game development courses, so win-win situation here...

I could remember the exact course, I think I was thinking of Computer Science (Games Programming) at the time.

I knew that CS has coding in it, would be very hard if it didn't. So pure CS is mainly what I want then?

Just do Computer Science. It's the most respected and least limiting option.

Depends if you wanna be coding most of your uni life - if you enjoy it then do CS alone.
If you want a balance of coding and something else (e.g. maths) then do "CS and Maths".

Computer Science degrees allow you to specialize in second and third years.
