Getting a degree in Computer Science has classes that introduce you to programming. They go in depth with it too. Look in your local college to see what classes they offer...C++, C#, Java, BREW are some of the languages that many employers look for in interviewing. The main 2 application programming interfaces (API) that's used for console programming are OpenGL and DirectX. Those API's are in C++, C, and C# I believe. So studying those is a big advantage... There are tutorials out there if you can teach it yourself. OpenGL API has a dedicated website http://nehe.gamedev.net/
DirectX is something you should google... type in "learn DirectX" and you should get a lotta hits...anyways, good luck...oh btw, I also go to gameinstitute.com where they teach and put a heavy emphasis in programming, check them out also
