America has a long tradition as the land of the free and home of the brave. Does this include the freedom to study whatever you darn well like? And the bravery to dedicate yourself to a college course that will confuse your friends and family?\r\n\r\nYou bet it does! To prove it, we\u2019ve found seven of the weirdest college majors currently available in the USA, as well as another that (sadly) is even more unique.\r\n1. Booze Studies!\r\nIf you want to make your own beer, you could always study for a degree in Fermentation Sciences from the Appalachian State University. More into wine than beer? Try Cornell University\u2019s Viticulture and Enology degree instead!\r\n2. Masters of Packaging\r\nFor more than sixty years, Michigan State University has \u201cbeen a leader in teaching, research and outreach focused on packaging containers, materials, their functionality and improvement.\u201d We never knew so much thought went into packaging, but we\u2019ll definitely remember next time we can\u2019t get a pickle jar open.\r\n3. Decision Sciences\r\nUnable to pick your major? Why not try a course in Decision Sciences? It\u2019s not actually designed to help you make decisions, but it does cover statistics, information systems and operation management, so it sounds quite useful.\r\n4. Become a Professional Adventurer!\r\nOK, so a degree in Adventure Education won\u2019t make you an adventurer in the same way Indiana Jones is an adventurer, but it\u2019s definitely a start.\r\n5. The Truth is Out There\u2026\r\nDo people look at you funny when you say you\u2019ve dedicated your life to discovering aliens? They might take you more seriously if you introduce yourself as a qualified astrobiologist!\r\n6. Shoeing Horses\r\nHorses across the country are glad that farriers are trained professionals, as no one would want to have strips of metal nailed to their feet by an amateur.\r\n7. Mortuary Science\r\nIf you find busy office environments a little stressful, you might enjoy the peace and solitude of the mortuary instead (as long as you don\u2019t mind all the dead bodies).\r\n8. Enigmatology\r\nAccording to its inventor, enigmatology is the study of puzzles. Why haven\u2019t you heard of it until now? Because only one person has ever earned a degree in enigmatology: Will Shortz, who designed his own major program at Indiana University in 1974.\r\n\r\nThis makes Will Shortz the world\u2019s only college-accredited \u201cpuzzle master,\u201d which sounds a bit like the name of a crossword-based superhero. For this reason alone, we salute him.
