12. Texas A&M University: Poultry Science
You’re chicken if you aren’t taking a chance on this major.
11. Bowling Green State University: Popular Culture
One positive: never be out of the loop in any social situation. One negative: sound obnoxiously academic when discussing the merits of late-night television.
10. Carnegie Mellon University: Bagpipe Performance
The major was established in 1990 and has only had three graduates of the art since.
9. Edith Cowan University: Surf Science
Hit the books and then hit the waves? Sounds beyond cool, and appropriately Australian.
8. University of Nevada at Las Vegas: Entertainment Engineering and Design
This major is wildly useful considering the place where it is being taught: Vegas.
7. University of North Texas: Jazz Studies
Along with the required courses, majors have to wear cool sunglasses and snap in rhythm at all times (so we’ve heard…).
6. University of Connecticut: Puppet Arts
If you’re going to learn to be a puppeteer anywhere, do it in the most highly-celebrated puppetry program in the nation, right?
5. Appalachian State University: Fermentation Sciences
Aaaand suddenly you get invited to a lot of parties.
4. Plymouth State University: Adventure Education
Adventure Education majors take courses inside the classroom, sure, but they also have rock-climbing, backpacking, and other adventurous outings.
If you think reading your textbooks is a bore but don’t want to major in adventuring, check out Boundless online textbooks and study tools.
3. Belhaven University: Sports Ministry
Students are trained to be managers and administrators of sports programs as part of a Christian vocation. That’s not hyper-specific at all…
2. Eastern Oklahoma State College: Meat Processing and Food Safety
Wait, why isn’t this more of a thing? Should we be checking degrees at steakhouses?
1. Anything you want!
If your school has an Individualized Major Program, and you can concoct a good enough plan … you can do whatever your heart desires! Take for example this Indiana University student who was the nation’s only magic major. MAGIC, GUYS.
