I do know many artist do use Adobe photo shop, and some use Coral draw. I'm not sure however if they use the drawing pads for computors or just plan mouse.

Most places these days with computer/art classes do use drawing pads/tablets. It's pretty much a requirement at the Electronic Imaging art classes at the community college I go to. Also, you're probably thinking of Corel Painter. That too is pretty much the primarily used program for raster/pixel image drawing/painting classes, with Adobe Photoshop used for digital photography and Adobe Illustrator used for Vector drawing classes.

Also, for a degree? Take a look see at any community colleges in the area. At the most, you can get an art degree in almost 2 years, though I'm not sure if that's true of all places.

I myself am transferring to a 4 year institution in '08/'09, so it's going to take me a little longer to get my Fine Arts degree. (But at least I'll be graduating with Honors!) I'd LOVE to go to the Kubert School since I'd like to do comics someday, but my parents are not too keen on me living out of state.
