This download is a custom major. This means that you will need the MajorsMadeEasier mod by FrikaC installed in order to use the download in your game.

This is a New University Major based on the Harry Potter Books. It is Muggle Studies which is based on course requirements stated in "The Order of the Phoenix". I hope all your Harry Potter sims love this new major. It is cloned from the Psychology Major but has its own GUID: 0x00190903. Here is what the Major looks like:

Major: Muggle Studies
Description: Ever wonder about the other people in the world; the NON-magical people? Muggle Relations is a very important but fun job. Marvel at unneccessary things like Pelytones and Ecleticity.

Freshman 1st Term: History of Muggle Relations: Salem Witch Hunts
Freshman 2nd Term: Enthusiasm

Sophomore 1st Term: Patience
Sophomore 2nd Term: Good Sense of Fun

Junior 1st Term: Dressing like a Muggle: Do you stand out in a crowd?
Junior 2nd Term: Muggle Studies

Senior 1st Term: Traveling: The slow way
Senior 2nd Term: Electricity and Other Muggle Oddities

Please Let me know if anything doesn't work right. Also, Look for my other Harry Potter Inspired Majors and hopefully corresponding careers in the near future.

Just wanted to let you know, though this obviously looks nice and I'll probably try it, that this particular major has already been done before -

Of course there's a difference-- it's not like you stole it, but I think maybe if you check out their (Trissle) work to see what hasn't been done yet it would be realy cool, so that we get more variety and no one squables over which is better (not that I think it would really come up, but still...).

Just an idea and an FYI. ^_^ This looks fun though, so I'm going to go ahead and download with the rest of them.

There are three rules in internet signatures:
1. keep them short.

There is a download here called Majors Made Easier but I'm not sure what the link is. You can get them to choose it like that. You can also assign it to certain sims using SimPE.

Hiya! Like the major. (and your other ones)
I'm the person who made the other Muggle studies major. If you're interested in other Harry Potter majors I've made quite a few. (You said you had trouble finding others - the best way might be to look at my downloads. Or check out )

My mind never wanders, it packs it's backpack, puts on it's boots and goes on a mountain hike.
