QUIZ: Can You Guess Which of These College Majors Are Real?

Back in my day—which sounds like it was in the 1940s since I phrased it that way but I’m still young and relevant, I SWEAR—you had to major in things like econ or biology or English. The chance to major in BOWLING or COMIC BOOK ART or SURFING simply wasn’t there. (And if it had been, I wouldn’t have done it anyway, because I’m terrible at most things but especially those.)

But with this sudden influx of cool college majors, it’s becoming harder and harder to distinguish between “actual career paths” and “some hot nonsense.” Can you tell which of these is an actual thing you can major in?
