Career Questions: CS or IT

I want to have a career on cyber security (forensics, pentesting, security analyst, etc) but I don't know what college course to take. Should I take computer science or it? What are the specific differences between them? What are the paths I could take to achieve the aforementioned careers that I want in the near future?

I have chosen CS and I'm happy with it. If you want cyber security, it doesn't really matter if you choose CS or IT. One thing I know is that you'll need python for doing this and CS offers python course, except that you know python. Which city are you from?


My friend (a pentester) chose IT and said it was the option that made most sense
