In Nottingham, you can get a degree in heavy metal music

Wow, this is too cool for words. At the New College Nottingham in England, you can headbang your way to a degree in heavy metal. To be specific, if you enroll in the Heavy Metal Music Performance degree — it’s a full time course, mind you, heavy metal demands nothing less than guts, blood, sweat and round-the-clock commitment — you will learn how to market yourself, work on your on-stage performance, get a good footing on the history of heavy metal, and more.

The three-year foundation degree course commences in September 2013 and will be awarded by Nottingham Trent University, with a one-year BA top-up thereafter for those who want to be thoroughly qualified for a career in heavy metal with the full degree.
