Choosing the Right Computer Networking Program in Mississippi

What are my options?

In Mississippi, there are lots of opportunities for those interested in pursuing computer networking careers. Almost every college in the state has some kind of program for those with an interest in computer networking. It's just a matter of students choosing the right school and the right program for them and their interests. All students really need to further their education is a high school diploma or its equivalent. Students can be of any age and of any educational background, as long as they are willing to commit themselves to learning and growing in the computer networking field.

For many individuals who wish to ease their way into the educational system, getting an associate's degree is a good idea. These degrees can be earned in as little as two years, sometimes less depending on the student. While associate's degrees do present some opportunities on their own once they are earned, they can also be used to pursue a bachelor's degree as well. It is even easier to transfer associate's degree credits if the same school is attended for both degrees. Some students prefer to enroll in a bachelor's degree program from the start. This is ideal for students who already have a clear idea of what they want to do for a career. Associate's degrees, on the other hand, are good general degrees that can help students to explore various areas of the computer networking field. The student should really think about the pros and cons of each degree program before making a decision. In the end, however, a bachelor's degree, no matter how it is earned, will present the most and best opportunities for students.

For people who have already attended college, perhaps in a different field, and who need to gain expertise in a certain area, certifications can be the answer. These do not qualify as a degree, but they do show that a student has studied extensively in a certain area. Many employers regard such certificates with a lot of respect, especially if they accompany a degree. While a person does not have to have a degree in order to earn a certificate, this is usually considered the smartest way to go about it.

Once a student has decided what level of degree he or she would like to pursue, the next step is to find the right school and the right program. A good school will, of course, be fully accredited and will also offer a program directly related to the student's interests. Fortunately, Mississippi has many wonderful schools with a wide variety of computer network programs and degree offerings. Schools to consider include Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale; East Central Community College in Decatur; Jones County Junior College in Ellisvile; Itawamba Community College in Fulton; Holmes Community College in Goodman; Antonelli College in Jackson; ITT Technical Institute in Madison; Meridian Community College in Meridian; Mississippi Delta Community College in Moorhead; Hinds Community College in Raymond; East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, and many others.
