Game of Thrones Character's University Degrees if They Were Real PeopleBy Chris Brandt, UniversityHerald Reporter
Game of Thrones is no doubt one of the most interesting television series with epic scenes and larger than life characters. What if Daenerys, Arya Stark, Cersei, Kal Drogo, and the other characters are real people and have gone to university, what would be their degree and profession other than what they are doing right now? Here's a funny take on some of the GoT characters when they go to school.
Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of the Dragons, can be both described as fierce and soft. Her heart goes out for those who are oppressed and boils against the oppressor. Remember that scene when she ordered the Unsullied to kill their masters? The look on Kraznys' face was epic after realizing she understood everything he said. The way she used Valyrian and English easily gives a hint that Daenerys would have taken Foreign Languages in university and she must have been very good at it.
If his wife was into foreign languages, Kal Drogo was into astronomy. He might not have used what he learned in the most practical of ways but he surely used them effectively to woo Daenerys as they exchanged "moon of my life" and "my sun and stars" as terms of endearment instead of the usual ho-hum pet names.
Cersei must be one of the most annoying characters in Game of Thrones. Cold, calculating, and conniving, there is also no doubt that she is brilliant and makes sure that things are get done fast and efficiently. With that said, she could make a very good career at Finance and even have a job even before she graduates from college.
What Tyrion lacks in size, he makes up for his brain. The guy can make a very fine lawyer with his love for books and knack for debates. His love for studying will also give him a very satisfactory LSAT score. So if ever there's one degree he will pursue to fulfill that dream, Tyrion would be taking pre-law.
If Ned Stark went to college, he would have taken up Ethics. He's the guy who knows when to do what is right and what is wrong. He also knows when to be serious and when to let go during a party. He may not be the most popular guy in the campus but this one surely uses his head.
Varsys would have surely listened to his professors when he took public relations in university. He knows how to weave gossip upon gossip to have anyone believe every word he says as if they were God's word themselves.
Have you seen Anya wield that sword effortlessly and fight as if she was just dancing on stage? There is no doubt that she could have take up performing arts and she did it well, even applying it practically in battle and everyday life.
Jorah is a brilliant strategist knowing for a fact that alliances are what makes a successful reign. Most of all, he knows which alliances to build and which one to break. So when he went to college, he must have taken up international studies.
Remember how Jon Snow was able to hold the wall? Such a brilliant architect this man is. Unfortunately, he didn't last long but not for long, of course.
