I can't answer the "How hard" question as that is rather subjective. The maths element of computer science tends to revolve around boolean algebra (which sounds worse than it is) and the understanding of the binary / hexadecimal number system. Neither is particularly complex once you understand the rules. There is certainly a lot more to computer science than just coding, but it is an entirely worthy subject to take and not a soft touch by a country mile.
Good luck with your decision.
