No joke! Before he was a Simpsons writer, talk show host, and leader of TeamCoco, Conan O'Brien graduated with a degree in History & Literature! You can read Conan's reflections on his decision to study Hist & Lit, written for our 2006 centennial celebration. Conan also talks about the (somewhat traumatic) process of writing his senior thesis below (we're sorry!).
