The former is a proprietary technology, the latter is a methodology. I go
to uni to learn the theory of an idea, without being tied to any one
company's implementation of that idea. If I want to learn a specific
company's implementation, I'd do that in my own time. Also, you can apply
XP to .NET, but not the other way around.

I'd therefore choose the latter subject. I think it'd be worthwhile.
