You should have a degree syllabus that outlines all the classes, requirements, and details there in. That's your best bet.

You should learn some math, some comp theory, language theory, an actual language or two, design, database stuff, etc.

For future reference - you don't need to quote the post above yours and you certainly shouldn't inject your reply in the actual quote. It makes understanding your reply incredibly difficult.

Yeah it is really uncertain as to what to expect from a degree in the way of what you will learn and not. Each university/school has their own curriculum and teach slightly different things. That is why you should have looked at computer science programs from multiple schools and see which topics you actually want to cover.

One thing you can do for yourself now is learn how to program in a given language like C++ or Java because those will be really helpful for you. Also I recommend reading some books on networking, operating systems and databases. If your program is any good I would also suggest working on your soft skills like working with other people in teams and learning how to give a presentation.

But as Modi put it, the syllabus is going to be the truth as to what you will be exposed to. :)
