I like to program games, but my dream is to go to college for my masters in game design

I tried my hand at UDK, and maybe i will go back to it at some point but it is a bit more focused on scripting etc, and since i am only one person, Its hard for me to do everything, graphics/scripts along with the design itself.

I love the construction kits of oblivion and new vegas, but the new one for skyrim is coming out so i will just wait for that to come out I guess before i think about designing some stuff in there.

Unless somebody has a good place for me to get started designing games, or learn more about it etc.

I have used Unity and the scripting in Unity really isn't that difficult but i sort of feel limited by it.

You aren't asking about Game Design. You're asking the typical For Beginners technical question, "what language/toolset should I learn first" (or something very close to it).
This is moving to For Beginners. You should read these:

http://www.gamedev.net/index.php?app=forums&module=forums&section=rules&f=31
http://www.gamefromscratch.com/post/2011/08/04/I-want-to-be-a-game-developer.aspx

If you really want to know "where to begin" with game design, post again in Game Design, but without all the technical mentions, after reading that forum's FAQ.
