Default New user looking for advice:)

I am a new student going to a local CC and not sure which degree I should choose.One is the traditional CS degree and the other is the B.A.S SD(Bachelors of applied science Software Development) both is a 4 year degree the BAS SD focuses more on programming I will link the program guide for the BAS SD note that this is just the first 2 years at Valencia.because the CS is more well known so I would think there is no need to link the program guide. http://valenciacollege.edu/asdegrees...d-Analysis.pdf I figured if I do this one I can get a non-game job and get exp while working on ''game programming'' on my own or even further my education with a masters degree and maybe a tech school? I guess what I need to know is would I qualify for jobs that says BS CS or equivalent with this BAS SD.Thanks to whoever reads and responds any advice is very apreaciated!!!!!

Go for the CS degree. It has applicability for games and non-game careers as well.
