What type of degree should I get? Computer Science or Computer Programming?

Hello, I am currently enrolled at a college called ECPI to get a bachelors degree in Computer Programming / Web Development.. However, the school is about 77 miles away, which I will be making a daily commute because I don't want to move away. However, there is a local college here, where I can get an associates degree in Computer Science, and then pass off the credits to a four year college to get a bachelors. Should I go for the computer science, or the computer programming? Why? Which makes more money, and has more job opportunities? Thanks so much, Kyle PS I am fairly skilled a web programming currently, and would be looking forward to learning C/C Objective-C, etc.. Thats why I mainly picked Computer Programming.
