What do Natalie Portman, Hugh Hefner and Ted Bundy all have in common? No, this isn't the set up for a bad joke. What these three famous (or infamous) individuals have in common is that they all earned a bachelor's degree in psychology. I recently received an email question from a reader about whether any famous individuals had majored in psychology while in college. The following are just a few well-known individuals who were psychology majors.

  • Jerry Bruckheimer (television and movie producer): B.A. in psychology from the University of Arizona

  • Wes Craven (film director and writer): B.A. in psychology and education from Wheaton College

  • Gloria Estefan (singer and song-writer): B.A. in psychology from the University of Miami

  • Katherine Hepburn (actress): B.S. in psychology from Bryn Mawr College

  • Guy Kawasaki (venture capitalist and blogger): B.A. in psychology from Stanford University
