I am thinking about getting a degree either in Information Technology or Computer Science. What would be the difference?

I'm not sure all the diferences, but I think a computer science degree would be more prestigious. I base this on the fact that most research universities (In USA) only offer computer science degrees. I think CS is a more general field.

Computer Science is oriented towards teaching the general principles of programming that go beyond any single specific programming language or software system.
Information Technology is oriented more towards learning to use the currently fashionable programming languages and tools to solve business problems.
