While I can only speak for my experience of U.K. university, if you have already done SCJD then you have exceeded the programming level of an Information Systems degree in this country. There is a lot of useful stuff on software development process and the wider framework into which programming fits, but as a programmer you will be bored out of your skull. I felt that I.S. was like a taster programme; a little bit of this, a little bit of that...
If you love code do Comp Sci.

Regards,
Ken
