Computer science degrees are a lucrative field that are popular in the industry and that is growing in popularity in the United States.
Computer science majors, however, have the lowest average grade point average (GPA) in the country, with the average GPA at just 3.8% in the latest College Board data.
While that may seem low, it’s actually quite a bit higher than the national average of 3.6%.
Here’s why the college majors average is so low: Computer science degree programs are often competitive with other disciplines, meaning the cost of attending is much higher than other majors.
A typical computer science degree can cost up to $60,000, and many students can take out student loans to cover the cost.
For some, this cost is a big reason why they choose a career in computer science.
For others, it may be a way to secure a better salary as a software engineer.
The average salary for a computer science major is $55,000.
Computer engineering degree programs average $59,000 and $65,000 for bachelor’s degrees, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
However, it should be noted that the salary data is from a year in 2018 and so may be skewed.
In the same data set, the average salary is $80,000 with the largest increase being $25,000 from a bachelor’s degree to a computer engineering degree.
What to know about computer science degrees for 2018Computer science degrees may be popular in recent years.
As of March 1, 2018, the number of computer science programs in the U.S. had reached a peak of about 2,400.
The number of students studying computer science in the 2016-17 school year was 1,851, with about 9% of the students in that year going on to earn a computer or computer engineering bachelor’s or master’s degree.
That number fell to 939 in 2017, with an increase of about 5% to reach a record high of 2,631 in 2018.
However that may have been due to the introduction of the Common Core State Standards and the increasing acceptance of more advanced programming languages like Java, Python, Ruby, and other languages.
Computer scientists also are getting more competitive in the job market as the cost for entry into the field has gone down and there are more programs available.
As a result, the demand for computer science courses has increased, which has led to a drop in the average cost for computer studies in the last five years.
The cost of a computer studies degree is about $6500, according the BLS, which means the average price is only $9,000 per year.
