To grow the interest of children in studies, some universities, mainly in the UK and the US have gone too far in terms of career and courses. There are all weird types of educational degrees and course titles out there.

The Horology degree at Birmingham City is all about time. You learn to become a watchmaker or clockmaker by mixing the art and science of well, time measurement.


3.  Sexual Health Studies

The course in UCLan, UK, might be a awkward topic to be discussed upon. The modules teach you the design and delivery of sex and relationship education with a global perspective of sexual health. Though it sound awkward, it's worth a long-term highly paid career.


4.  Yacht operations

The degree isn't what it sounds like, you won't be invited to a Yacht party all the time. The two year foundation course at South Devon college will teach you to travel and maintain a boat in the sea and there are of course, offshore expeditions. This is a good degree for people pursuing a career in maritime industry


5.  Surf Science & Technology

Many of us have heard this term before but none of us knew that it was a degree course at the University of Abertay in Dundee. It teaches you everything about computer hacking and obviously, you’ll be able to hack.
