ok, thanks again everybody. I think I'll stick with SE for now. Does anybody else have anything to say?

ok, question time again. At one of the colleges I'm looking at, the SE degree doesn't seem to teach programming itself, but the concepts behind programming. Meaning it won't teach you the languages, but it'll teach you how to build a program. I'm not sure I want to do that. Does anyone else have other thoughts?

It does have the word "Engineer" in it though, which means you have a better chance of being hired for any position (including programming ones). I say software engineering simply because employers like hiring engineers (ie people who can build stuff, problem solvers). Plus, if you don't end up going into programming, you have a lot more flexibility with a SE degree.
