Yo, I'm a first year Computer Science college student, I've been thinking of pursuing a career as a Game Programmer. I was wondering since the only languages we are learning at the moment are Java and SQL, how useful is Java for developing games.
Should I self-teach other languages like C++ or Python aswell?

C++ would be useful, so would java. You could consider C# but do some research into it's usage as a game platform first. A lot of games are written with special game engines now so you could consider things like Unreal and Unity.
And graphics are, of course, very important …
