Not too weird. I majored in mathematics and minored in philosophy. Graduated from Wake Forest in 1962. In graduate school I specialized in differential equations of mathematical physics. Graduated from Rice in 1966.My major was in biology, with a minor in philosophy. (Weird huh?)
I graduated in '85.

It is like the film industry: you can get a degree in the subject, but you really have to get lucky while fetching coffee for
