    Wow. I can't tell if you're kidding or not.

    Who would pursue a degree in a field where they have no prior knowledge in? I'm really surprised you're asking this. In my opinion, it's almost idiotic.

    To answer your question, salaries vary; it depends on the job. Jobs vary too, there are thousands of companies that hire CS graduates; google, apple, etc.

    I've done tons of research regarding CS degrees. This includes paths to take after earning the degree (joining or starting a company, etc), types of classes needed to earn the degree, different colleges to attend, etc. And on top of that, I have yet to earn a single credit towards the degree; I'm still undecided.

    Computer science is tough but it'll be worth it, you do need a passion for it to be great at it. My friend who got a degree in computer science is now working for eBay, and is making a butt load of money.

    there are lots of jobs you can get with a CS degree. Of Course, it depends on university/college. you can work as a junior developer and earn 20-40 thousand, but if you have enought experience, knowledge and passion, you can work as a team leader and earn up to 200 thousand and more.
