What The Characters Of Harry Potter Would Major In If They Went To College

Have you ever wondered what the Harry Potter characters would ever do if they were living in the Muggle World? I can't answer many of those questions for you, but I can shed some light on what the characters would major in, if they went to college.

1. Harry Potter- International Relations

Now, this one was hard to choose. After Harry leaves Hogwarts, he becomes an auror, and eventually is the head of the whole department. Criminal Justice doesn't feel right for him to major in, since he works with a lot more than that. Since he has to be diplomatic with what he does, and what he has done in the past, International Relations feels best.

2. Ron Weasley- Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice has always been the stereotypical lazy major. There's no denying that people with this major do a lot of work, but laziness is just what Ron was attracted to. He also becomes an Auror after the war for a good amount of time, reinventing the department with Harry, before he left to go help George with the joke shop.

3. Hermione Granger- History and Political Science

Nobody could ever hold Hermoine Granger back from accomplishing great things. After being the only one of the trio to go back to Hogwarts to complete her schooling, she started to work for the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. She changed the world and their opinions of house elves. After that, she became the new Minister of Magic after Kinglsey Shacklebolt. She had to work hard in her studies and possibly went to law school (in this muggle world fanstasy). The best way to accomplish this is to major in History and Political Science.

4. Draco Malfoy- Chemistry

Now, with Draco, we're unsure if he even would have gone to college in the first place. He basically just inherited his family's money, and he didn't really need to do much to stay rich and powerful. But he does go on to do a lot of alchemical work after the war, and even has the oppportunity to create his own philosophers stone but doesn't. The closest thing to alchemy in the Muggle World is chemistry.

5. Neville- Environmental Science

Some time after the war, Neville becomes the new Herbology at Hogwarts. Environmental Science is the basic equivalent of that. He is passionate about what he wants to do, and he also wants to teach others that they can be passionate about whatever and be successful in it.

6. Luna- Biology

After Hogwarts, Luna marries Rolph Scamander, the grandson of Newt Scamander, and she travels the world with him, studying magical creatures. So her major is Biology, with a subfocus of Zoology.

7. Fred and George- Business Administration

Obviously, Fred and George open their own shop, so they need Business Admin. But since you don't necessarily need a degree to start your own business, I assume that the twins, much like at Hogwarts, drop out early to open their business.

8. Ginny- Journalism

Ginny goes to be a player on the Holyhead Harpies before settling down to be a sports journalist, most specifically for Quidditch. Now, while they don't have Quidditch in the Muggle World, soccer is pretty close. This is why Ginny majored in Journalism with a subfocus of sports journalism.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
