Just to help you get started: You should pick a language you are comfortable using or that works with the externals you want to use. For myself, I went with C++ and SFML. This page may help you find more topics. And to give you a path to work on: Read This.

Oh, and starting small is the best. As that last article says, polish what you make before you move on. Don't go with functional, go with awesome. You will pick up more tricks of the trade you can use in later projects. I've learned a few things about how sound works in games.

College education isn't what it used to be. ;o

___________________________________
But to answer your question, MATH. High level math is what's needed That's all you need for game programming...then you get directx or something similar and the actual programming is the easy part.
