Most universities (incl. UofU and BYU) don't teach php, and they usually
don't teach any web languages (like JavaScript), and many don't teach
scripting lanaguages either (like PHP, perl, python, ruby, or shell).

However, good programming principles and practices can generally be
applied to almost any language. PHP is no exception. The things you
learned about good programming in C, C++, Java, LISP, or whatever, still
apply in PHP. So any class that teaches good programming style will be
helpful for PHP as well.

I second the idea of getting some good books, too.
