Prince William is reportedly not very smart. After all, he took up a “soft option” course while studying at the University of St. Andrews.

Professor Danny Dorling said that geography departments have some of the narrowest and poshest social profiles at universities. In his journal Emotion, Space, and Society, Dorling claimed that geography graduates may have attained high grades at school, but they are oftentimes not good in math, writing or imagination.

“Geography in the UK has become a soft option for those who come from upper-middle-class families where increasingly you are expected to go to university,” he said.

Dorling also said that the majority of the students who graduate with a degree in geography like Prince William are very wealthy but they don’t necessarily have the sharpest brains. The expert also said that the subject’s association with the English upper-class dates back to the late 1970s.

“They were more and more usually seen by their peers as not having done that well and hence having had to apply to study geography. Many of them can then take their university degrees and head out to banking, advertising and management and make the world an even worse place,” he said.

Other geography graduates include former Prime Minister Theresa May, who received a 2.2 degree from St. Hugh’s College at Oxford University in 1977. Mother Theresa was also considered a geography and history expert, and she also taught children at Calcutta schools. Michael Jordan also studied geography at the University of North Carolina in 1986.

“As educators we are left in Britain with the very tricky job of explaining to students who may have been awarded an A, A+, or 9 or 8 at math or English at GCSE that this does not mean that they are brilliant at these subjects and will be able to think imaginatively about data or write engagingly about a topic,” Dorling explained.
