You Can Now Major in 'Pizza Hut' at a British University
Want to make, sell, and savor the perfect slice of pizza—all while earning college credit? Your cheesy pipe dream can now become a reality thanks to England’s Manchester Metropolitan University, which will soon offer a degree in all things Pizza Hut.
The college teamed up with the fast food behemoth to create a five-year apprenticeship for 1500 students. According to the Manchester Evening News, the interdisciplinary curriculum will include training in food production, financial analysis, and other courses that “will equip [candidates] with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant.”
Depending on their university level, some students will study at the college, whereas others will be schooled within a new, delicious classroom: an actual Pizza Hut restaurant.
British skills minister Nick Boles told the Evening News that he thinks apprenticeships like the Pizza Hut program will help boost England’s businesses and help students gain valuable, real-life work experience. In any case, we’re sure that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pizza Rat, and hungry adolescents around the world will be the first to submit their applications.
