I think your current path prepares you for a career in network administration. If you choose that route, I recommend you prop it up with industry certifications from Cisco, Juniper, and other network equipment vendors. What matters is that you get the appropriate knowledge and skills to operate and manage network equipment safely in a production environment. That will require you to have a mindset of "keep it simple" and "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Having a background in Computer Science will give you a leg up, because if you actually learn something there, you could take on just about any IT job you choose to specialize in, whether it is databases, systems/network administration, programming, etc... for the simple reason that Computer Science is not about teaching you how to operate equipment, it literally teaches you how to make machines solve real world problems. Since machines are dumb, the sapience will be entirely on you, and learning all the stuff is what makes Comp Sci challenging. You will have to be knowledgeable in pretty much all the major math fields for one (algebra, calculus, discrete math, etc...). Not as much as a math major, but not far behind. Being very curious, pragmatic, and creative in your problem solving methods is definitely a huge plus in any major you choose, and especially in Comp Sci.

If you understand the following and laugh out loud, Comp Sci is likely made for you:
"There are 10 types of people, those who understand binary and those who don't."

Hi. Computer science is usually related to software development, learning programming languages to develop new applications and software programs. Networking and Telecom is related to the infrastructure required for networks to work. Networking and Telecom is not seen by the consumer but it allows operators and internet companies to offer their solutions.
