Do I have to own a DSLR to be a real photographer?

I want to take my photography in a new direction. I've worked with point-and-shoots for several years now and been reasonably happy with the results. I'm wondering if the time is right to buy a DSLR. What does a DSLR offer me that a point-and-shoot does not? For that matter, what does a DSLR offer that the prosumer cameras
cannot? And while I'm on the topic, are there some things I should be aware of as potential pitfalls as a new DSLR owner?
I'm wondering because a DSLR seems to be mandatory equipment for most of the halfway serious camera courses out there.
Many thanks in advance.
