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 Wizard Banking 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 Mathematics Major but has its own GUID: 0x00190902. Here is what the Major looks like:

Major: Wizard Banking
Description: Are You seeking a challenging career involving travel, adventure, and substantial, danger-related treasure bonuses? After studying Wizard Banking you could take a position at Gringotts Wizarding Bank as a Curse-Breaker.

Freshman 1st Term: History of Banking: See how far we really haven't come
Freshman 2nd Term: Getting Along with Goblins

Sophomore 1st Term: Money Counting: If you can't do this, You're a Troll
Sophomore 2nd Term: Foreign Studies

Junior 1st Term: Charms: Spellwork at its best
Junior 2nd Term: Transfiguration: Don't like the neighbors? Turn them into frogs!

Senior 1st Term: Ancient Runes: Decipher the indecipherable
Senior 2nd Term: Arithmancy: magical properties of numbers

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.

You've got a good major here, but all four of your majors will only appear within the US version of the Sims. Someone else was trying to figure this out- I think this thread may help you out-

Yes, it works with both EPs but is dependent on University of course.

Does it work on any version now?
I mean, not only on the US one?
Because I really want to have this, and the other one that you've made... But well, look to your left and you'll see where I'm from... not the US...
