University is not there to teach you how to program on a certain language. University is there to teach you what data structure are, list, .... Java, C, Assembler does not really make a difference.
When I worked at University of Montreal in the 70's eveybody swear by Pascal, the hot algorithmic language at that time with recursion, as a bonus. I don't think any graduate from 1975 to 1985 ever used Pascal after his univetrsity degre but the ones that became teachers.
In the middle of the 90s... the money years for Cobol programmers because of Y2K I hired a few Cobol programmers for a performance project, including one who had only programmed in Java before (actually this is the guy who introduced me to Java, thanks Francois).
I needed a performance specialist, didn't really care if he knew Cobol or not, I knew he would learn it in a few weeks.
So don't focus on the actual language you learn. It may disappears (like Algol, Pascal, Simula, APL did) before you finish your degre.
If you follow a Relational Dabase course do you think it matters if you use MS-Access, Oracle, Sybase HSqlDB, MySQL ? Do you think your futur employer will check with which database you learned ? SQL is SQL and the difference between the different flavors of it you'll pick them up fast enough.
