Choosing a college major can be an overwhelming process to think about. The future is often thought of as a grand scheme where everything must be precise starting from the school of the students' choice up to the college courses needed.

But some college courses are not at all stuffy and serious as some would think. There are five weird college courses you can take when it comes to one's higher education. And it is not complicated science, as reported by KXLY Radio Station.

There are universities that offer classes that range between garbage and Harry Potter. And there are certified professors and lecturers who are teaching these courses.

Centre College offers The Art of Walking. This is an applicable class for those who definitely love to walk a lot. It lets the students absorb the surroundings and philosophy of walking.

For those who want something more intense, Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers a course on American Pro Wrestling. The school sees the sport as a tool that can examine masculine role models and dive into the drama of show-wrestling.

There is also a study on Lady Gaga, the pop icon herself. Gaga 101 is a course being offered at the University of South Carolina. It revolves on the question as to why everyone is interested in Lady Gaga.

Learn about Garbage for example. The Joy of Garbage is a course designed to talk about, well, trash, reported by Santa Clara University. The class focuses on the uses of garbage and its effects in global warming.

For those who are fans of Harry Potter, there is The Science of Harry Potter. Frostburg State University offers a deeper dive into the magical world through the use of science. Magic is after all a combination of chemistry, physics, biology and engineering.

College life does not have to be serious. There are courses and classes that can bring out the weird in people and still be able to apply it to their degrees and daily life.
