I'd like to study programming next year in college when I finish school. I assume most of you are professional programmers and that you've all been there. Most of the courses offered over here(Ireland) offer only one language "c" Java was another common one I even found one offering Visual BASIC which I thought was a bit stupid(maybe not) Anyway the programming courses also offer lots and lots and lots of other subjects in relation to the computer Industry, they don't seem to have a heavy emphasis on programming. I know there is people from all over the world who use these forums and was wondering if its normal for colleges and uni's to offer only one language, I thought you would need to do at least two if not three to be considered as a professional programmer. Would I even get an entry level position knowing only one language. I know there is private collages that offer only programming and nothing else, but they coast thousands of £ and $, where as if I go to a normal college I can go for free. I like to avoid paying lots of money if possible.
All comments and suggestions greatly appriciated
