Computer Science or Cyber Security degree?

Hello, which degree would be better Computer Science or Cyber Security if I wanna work as a penetration tester?(undergrad) :)



Having a Computer Science degree, you can easily learn computer security. This doesn’t work the other way around. I believe Computer Science is more broad and has more “substance” and will make you a better security expert (although requiring more effort)


I would recommend computer science degree. Cyber security certificates would be a good way to specialize in that direction
