BA in Witchcraft
#1
I’m sure there isn’t an accredited degree in witchcraft (or black magic, sorcery, etc) in America. Does anyone have any thoughts one why there isn’t one? My 10-20 year goal is to start a college & I’m thinking that a choice of a witchcraft major would be great/interesting.

Um....gonna guess that it's because there is zero market demand for those trained in the dark arts.  Cool

I used to run interfaith dialogue groups when I was a student at Michigan. There are actual people legitimately involved with this kind of work. Lot of different kinds of people out there.

This college has had at least one graduate accepted as a professional chaplain.

A student interested in studying witchcraft as a literary, historical, or cultural phenomenon could find a place in folklore studies or related humanities and social sciences. A student also could find a conducive environment at some nonsectarian, liberal, or progressive religious studies departments and theological schools.

I think you could cover a lot of content via self-study, I'm not sure that paying for a degree would be necessary. A degree is usually the credential that leads to employment, whereas studying for interest would be more recreational. If you can find an employer that is asking for a degree in witchcraft, you might want to shoot them an email and ask for suggestions for colleges that offer it/ obtain it.

I think this would be a pretty close major. Very interesting. Thanks for the info!

I didn’t think about those two suggestions. Good ideas. Thanks!
