I graduated with a computer science and the emphasis is pretty much on theoretical concepts (discrete mathematics, computational theory, graph theory, algorithms) and programming. The big emphasis is mostly on object oriented programming with a different focus per school on what language is being taught (Java, .NET, or whatever else). If you excel at Computer Science, then you can be a programmer or researcher.

A computer science degree is a pretty flexible degree. You will probably be studying programming in various languages, not just one. You can tailor the degree to your specific interests, be it internet coding, data crunching, hardware interface, or just computer system maintenance, it's really up to you what you specialize in. A computer science student could get a job almost anywhere. Businesses often need custom systems made for a number of tasks, from data management to point of sale kiosks. One could be hired on to build a new one or maybe even keep up an older system. Programming for a design firm is another option. Many design companies today try to deliver a total solution to clients, and this means having graphic designers in addition to programmers to make these graphics a reality.
