I commend all the folk on this site who contribute with all the knowledge they possess, whether it be dealing with biological processes of the body, nutrition, strength training, etc.
I know you don't necessarily have to have a degree to be well-educated in a field, but I don't doubt a lot of you do have them, so I'm curious - what kinds of degrees do you have? I've always wanted to major in Music production/composition or something along those lines, but recently I've been thinking about what else I want to study in addition to that. Perhaps minor in it (would that even be useful though?)
(Even if the degree isn't related to diet/lifting/training or the human body in any way shape or form, I'd still be interested in what you've studied in school.)
