I have an option to take an independent study next semester related to websites. I basically teach myself a programming language of my choice for the semester, and do a project for my professor at the end. He suggested either advanced java or php. I asked him which would help me get the quicker job with the most money. He said php would get me the quicker job, and java would get me the most money. Note - I have already taken a basic java class, so this would be a more advanced class.
What do you suggest I take? Or should I take any other languages?
