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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Today I give you a more realistic major that your Hogwarts' students might study.

Starting with herbology, this course is designed to teach you everything there is to know about magic. But be careful magic is a dangerous thing...

The focused skills are Creativity, Mechanical, Logic and Body and the unique guid is 0x00395D28. Here are the levels!

Herbology- Mandrakes and Me
Care of Magical Creatures- Training a Hippogriff
Divination- Recognising Tea Leaves
Charms- Swish and Flick
Transfiguration- Cats, Bats and Mats.
Potions- Mix and Stir, Mix and Stir!
Defence Against the Dark Arts- Patronus Charms, Defence Against Dementors
Apparitions- Now you see me, now you don't!

You will need to download FrikaC's MajorsMadeEasier to make this major work. You will need university aswell!

Thanks for your time, and enjoy!

Hey there!

This is a really cool idea. I keep running into a problem, though: after the first semester of Freshman year using this major, it no longer seems to register my Sims being qualified for the full bar. Even when they have all the skills required to work their way up to a 4.0, the bar stays stuck at just above "C" level. Has anyone else noticed this? What can I do about it?

Hmmm. I'll try to sort this out. First I need to find out if anyone else is having this problem.

I exactly have the same trouble than HaunterMooneyes. Do you have improved the career?

To explain were the career has a bug, it works exactly like 1 point was missing each semester.
