Physics Most useful Computer languages to learn for Astronomy

  1. Dec 2, 2016 #1
    Hi all,
    I am going to apply for graduate school next fall but I am not sure what computer language is most frequently used in astronomy/cosmology graduate programs. Any ideas?
    Also, in the mean-time I want to work and earn some money before I apply next year. What jobs experiences will make me a more desirable potential graduate student?

    It's more useful to learn programming than to learn one particular language.
