Which Database classes should I take?

I'm thinking about taking some database classes; either Intro to Visual Basic / SQL Server but I'm new to this and have NO prior database or programming experience. Can anyone give me some advice on where I should start? I've seen titles such as "Database Administrator" and "Database Developer". Now, I tend to be on the creative side (e.g. music, art). Would I fit better in one than the other? Any advice would be most appreciated.

Well I learned Oracle first, after that I was able to pick up any database management system. Sql server is fine but they will let you get away with things that you cant do in other DBMS. RJ
