Weird College Degrees

I could have used some weird college degrees back in the day when I was an undergraduate. The default for me, because I really didn't have any idea what I wanted to do, was Business Administration. My business skills were nonexistent. I'm really not a numbers guy and my first-year accounting course was sheer misery for me. See, back in the day, colleges didn't cater to students the way they do today. Maybe that's because things weren't as competitive as they now are. Whatever the reason, I eventually found my way out of the numbers game and into the comfort of liberal arts, which eventually carried me to where I am today (wherever that is).

We live now in the age of specialization. Many young people are blessed with the foresight to know exactly what they want to do in life, even down to the smallest detail. For those fortunate planners, there are some very specific college majors out there that can fill the bill for their needs. So, if you're one of those types who knows that viticulture and enology is what's calling to your inner person, then you're in luck. Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction, especially when it comes to college majors.
