we don't know what you are good at.

if we tell u CS is good to pursue, but you are good at history, then you will never be happy being a CS graduate.

find your passion, and be happy in what you do. this, we cannot help you. u need to find out yourself. maybe attend meetups or talk to people in the industry, or do volunteer work.

If you are not a math person, don't like to dabble with algorithms too much like Algo A or B faster and why why not go for information systems if u really want to stay in it field, if not, change ?

Default Try to get an internship or externship instead?

For courses like computer science, I would suggest picking up technical experience while doing on the job training. You can opt for internships or externships. Externships are shorter internship program that allow college students to shadow a experience professional and learn the ropes. I ahve compiled some information about internship and externship at .externship-vs-internship.blogspot.com
