Hi Rustomomom (yeah I can't read and spell names either..)

I don't think you will find a course description in most serious computer
science programs that mentions the languages being used as the main focus
of a computer science program it to teach the theory and not how to use the
tools (languages are tools not theories). I know for a fact that most
course descriptions for Uppsala University does not mention the languages
as that would lock the course to forcing students and instructors to use
that language.

PS: No offence about the name thing.
