The Brooklyn 99 Squad as College Majors

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Mt Holyoke chapter.

Here at HC Mount Holyoke, we love Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show is absolutely hilarious, but also tackles big issues such as racism, homophobia, and sexism in the police force, and the characters are super relatable. While watching B99 (rather than studying for our finals), it occurred to us that every member of the squad represents a different MHC major. See which character you match up with based on your major at MHC, and if you haven’t watch B99 yet, or unsure about whether you agree that your character fits your major, make sure to check out this article to learn a little more about some of the different characters!

1. Captain Holt – Statistics

2. Sergeant Jeffords – Art

3. Gina Linetti – Politics

4. Jake Peralta – Film Studies

5. Amy Santiago – Math

6. Rosa Diaz – Gender Studies

7. Charles Boyle – Self Designed Major in Culinary Arts

8. Scully and Hitchcock – UMass students
