I go to CSUH and I should be about a year and a half from finishing my B.S. in CS. My school has some computer science options for the degree: Computer Engineering; Networking and Data Communications; Software Engineering. They're an extra 9 courses, but they set you up nicely for the M.S.
I plan to work professionally and go to school at night to finish get the M.S.
I was wondering if having the option would be worth the extra year of school. Would you get bonus points from the potential employer for having a B.S. with an option?

I don't think it's worth the extra year. I'd be more interested in what you did to complement the curriculum rather than the curriculum itself.
