Should I get a BS or MS in CS? I have a BS in IT and MS in IT already. I'm a server admin now, but I want to get into software engineering. I'm having a hard time getting interviews though. Today I was told during an interview that they nearly didn't call me since I didn't have a degree in CS, which made me think about going back to school. I think this looks better: BS in Computer Science, MS in Information Technology Than this on my resume: BS in Information Technology, MS in Computer Science The curriculum for the bachelor programs look more programmer oriented too. The master programs seem to be more theoretical.
