Top 10 Coolest Majors

By Emily Perry - Oct 22 2015

1. Surf Science and Technology Cornwall College (UK)

Students take classes on the culture of surf, physical and geographical influence on serving, and many business classes. This prepares students for careers as surf instructors and other business ventures related to surfing.

2. Adventure Education - Plymouth State University

Rock climbing, canoe paddling, and wilderness expedition courses prepare students for careers as park rangers and other outdoor-related professional work.

3. Cannabis Cultivation - Oaksterdam University

Classes here include the history, politics and business of cannabis as well as many seminars on the current methods of cannabis intake. The major, however, is quite controversial and even prompted DEA, IRS, and US Marshall agents to show up at the college.

4.Poultry Science - Texas A&M

Students take general agriculture science classes, just with an added focus. This major, as one would guess, prepares students for careers in raising chicken, turkey, and other forms of poultry.

 5. Nannying - Sullivan University

Students study child development training, infant care techniques, etiquette and manners, and how to prepare nutritious meals and snacks. You guessed it: those who graduate from the program go on to serve as nannies or work in the childcare industry.

6. Canadian Studies Duke University

Example courses include Canadian History, Canadian Culture, and Canadian Literature. After graduation, many students find jobs in museums or as teachers.

7. Puppet Arts University of Connecticut


Students in this program master puppet production, voice techniques, scene design and much more in order to work in television puppetry, theatre performance, and children's programs. 

8. Beatles, Popular Music and Society - Liverpool Hope University (UK)

Do you want to be a Beatles historian or a popular music specialist? Liverpool Hope University is the place to be! Take classes in "Understanding Popular Music," and "The Beatles and Topics in History" to get a feel for this awesome major! 

9. Turfgrass Science - Penn State

Hey, someone's gotta learn how to maintain turf. Penn State allows students to take classes in Ornamental Weed Control, Turfgrass Nutrition, and Turfgrass pesticides!

10. Bowling Industry Management & Technology - Vincennes University
