Default Computer Science vs Software Engineering

Hello!
I'm quite new to this web. Tomorrow I'll have to choose between this two paths, I'm already coursing a degree on a career that mixes both. For a game programming or designing career which one do you think best?

Thanks!

Honestly, it doesn't really matter. Although for design, I be more inclined to look at (no games) design courses but really, for games design there is no concrete path.

How do the two courses differ?

"Best" is subjective. What's "best" for another guy is not necessarily "best" for YOU.
a. It's a false dichotomy, a classic bad two-choices question. http://www.sloperama.com/advice/lesson52.htm
b. You have to make this decision yourself. Here's how: http://www.sloperama.com/advice/m70.htm
