Musical Theatre Characters as College Majors

What would Evan Hansen study at school?

Musical Theatre Characters as College Majors
Hollywood Reporter

Not many musicals take place in a university setting, but what would happen if our favorite characters decided to go to college? What would they major in?

1. Nursing-Eliza Schuyler Hamilton from "Hamilton"

If I had to pick one person to take care of me when I'm sick, it'd be Eliza. She's incredibly patient and caring and would be great in a caregiving role, but she also possesses the smarts and motivation to succeed in such a challenging major.

2. Engineering-Willy Wonka from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"

He's already created a wondrous candy factory. If Willy Wonka learned the mechanics behind engineering, his imagination would reach new levels.

3. Education-Maria from "The Sound of Music"

Patient, compassionate, intelligent, and selfless...what more could you want in a future educator?

4. Music-Christine from "Phantom of the Opera"

Beautiful soprano voice + passionate and drive = successful music major.

5. Psychology-Natalie from "Next to Normal"

Natalie has grown up with a mother suffering from bipolar disorder and a father coping with depression. Mental health is close to her heart, I'm sure, and I think she would want to contribute to the important field of psychology.

6. Business-Harold Hill from "The Music Man"

So, maybe his first business venture isn't exactly ethical, but obviously he has drive and passion, so that's a good start!

7. Communications-Katherine Plumber from "Newsies"

Let's face it, this girl knows how to make a difference by spreading the word. After organizing a huge strike, I'm sure she's more than prepared to head into the world of communications.

8. Computer Science- Evan Hansen from "Dear Evan Hansen"

Evan is intelligent and he's obviously learned his lesson about the powers of technology. I think his skills would best be used in a forward-thinking career like this one.

9. Political Science-Tracy from "Hairspray"

Tracy is determined, inspiring, courageous, and a dreamer. There's a variety of things you can do with a political science degree, but if Tracy ever decided to run for office, I'd vote for her.

10. English- Belle from "Beauty and the Beast"

Well, she obviously loves to read and has a great understanding of the English language. Belle would thrive in the English department and whether she went on to be an editor, journalist, teacher, writer, or anything else, she'd be great!

11. Theatre-Glinda from "Wicked"

Have you ever met someone so perfect for the stage? Glinda is confident and charming on the surface, yet thoughtful and compassionate underneath. She has the work ethic, talent, and passion needed to succeed in such a competitive career.

12. Biology-Frederick Frankenstein from "Young Frankenstein"

He may already be a scientist, but he definitely would love to learn more about biology.

13. Visual Arts-Jack from "Into the Woods"

Artists need to be equal parts creative and critical thinkers. I think Jack would be fantastic in an art major because he cares about others but is also clever.

Honorable Mention: Joan-Medium Alison from "Fun Home"

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
