Four Cool Majors in College

by Katia on December 2, 2009

If you’re looking for something interesting to study that has a certain cool factor to it, then here are four ideas to get you thinking about what you want to study and what you might want to achieve after graduation.

1. Development Studies: Forget majoring in business while promising to give to charity once a year! Do something that matters… and sounds cool. Majoring in development studies, learning about the issues that affect developing countries and how to manage those issues, and making an international career out of fighting poverty, promoting trade, improving infrastructure, or other areas in need of attention in developing countries can help you feel good and do good around the world every day of the year.

2. Obscure Foreign Languages: Imagine being fluent in a language that many people have never heard of – like Quechua, Inuit, or Ndebele. Besides the requisite bragging rights, you can choose to study abroad or pursue an independent project to gain unique experiences that go beyond the typical college semester abroad in Italy. Learning a popular language certainly has its advantages, but by learning a more unique language, you can automatically specialize yourself in a niche area – providing you with a practically one-of-kind qualification in the job market.

3. Neuroscience: Like rocket science, neuroscience is ostensibly a major with a high IQ attached. With a college program in neuroscience, you can study the brain and the nervous system, and become involved in all sorts of exciting research with subjects that can range from cell biology to memory and learning to sexual arousal. But whether in the lab or on the street, neuroscience is a field that earns some R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

4. Archaeology: Want to be an Indiana Jones in the digital age? Well, it’s certainly possible in the field of archaeology. Learn to research, excavate, analyze, and preserve artifacts and other treasures; you can contribute to the stores of human knowledge and have adventures in distant lands as well. You can probably leave the whip at home though.

What do you think is a cool major?
