I'm a junior standing at college majoring in computer science. I would like to specialize in network security but I noticed the major is generalized for programming, networking, security, and web development. So I have been reading books on my own such as metasploit, 24 sins of software security, hacking: the art of exploitation, etc. My question is should I continue learning on my own or is there a logical method. Not a guide or tutorial but more of learn a, learn b, apply both to figure out c. Something of that nature. Second, to all the professionals here, what are need to know requirements for positions in this field of work. Languages? Databases? OS? Mentality? Etc. Thanks.
