I am a current college student entering my 3rd year of college at a
local JC. I plan on transferring at the end of the year. I enjoy
science, math, and computers. However, I don't really enjoy
programming, but like the network security field.  Math and physics as
majors don't look to promising because of the lack of jobs that I find
for them. I want a job that will pay over $100,000 and want an
education that will get me a job like that easily. I would major in physics,
but have been unable to find any jobs that would pay me over $100,000 or
any employers actively seeking physics majors. The same goes with
mathematics. I am able to find lots of jobs in Computer sciences in my
area, (Bay Area, CA) but nothing that would pay that much without all
sorts of specialized certifications. I am lost. The schools that I was
looking at were University of the Pacific, University of Advancing
Technologies, UC Santa Cruz, University of Santa Clara. Which school,
or maybe you could suggest a better match, would look better to an
employer? What major would be easier to get employed with, and what
jobs would be easy to get after I get my degree that would pay me lots
of money? I might be looking to get a masters if that helps! I also
enjoy research enviroments and labs, but those jobs are always so hard
to get... Thanks

You are not going to make 100K coming out of undergrad anywhere. 
However, if you come out with an MBA or a PhD, that might be possible.
 A PhD in math or physics from a name university will net you
something along those lines if you have a finance background and are
willing to do quant or actuarial work.
