    I recommend you go with your interested area.
    Learning a programming language will definitely help you in improving your logical skills..

    Your chosen classes are good to go with except C# Programming, you can go with Server-Side Programming or Advanced Web Page Applications (XML and JavaScript)

    C# is much like Java as both are object oriented, In my opinion learning one Object oriented language is enough and extending your expertise into more advance topics of that language will give you so much exposure to real time applications and problems.
