Computer Majors Becoming Less Popular in USA
Posted on August 9, 2004
Layoffs from the post dot-com boom and offshoring fears are driving interest away from computer majors according to a recent study cited in USA Today. According to the study by Computing Research Association, enrollment in computer majors has plummeted an incredible 23% since last year. Experts are concerned that the lack of interest in computer majors could hurt the United States in the future and accelerate the offshoring trend.
