Top Ten Best Hogwarts School Subjects


The Top Ten

1 Defense Against The Dark Arts

Fighting evil and wondering who's gonna be your teacher is cool

Is the best!

The best subject with the best teachers (except McGonagall)

I think it would be the best subject because it teaches us how to fight evil and every year it’s a new professor year one was Quirrell year 2 is Lockhart year 3 is Lupin year 4 is Barty Crouch jr disguised as mad eye year 5 was Umbridge year 6 was Snape and year 7 was the carrots it seems like every defense against the dark arts teacher was evil or an obvious fraud Lupin and Snape were the only ones who were not evil

2 Charms


Charms is another word for "spells". What is wizardry without charms? I'd rather throw colorful beams of energy from the tip of my wand than mix ingredients to make a potion or transfigure someone.

Bro, as a physicist, I'll just say that mixing ingredients or turning people into ferrets will, under laws of energy, require a transfer of energy from the wizard to the target, just like it would with charms. Whether or not you excel in charms, you will be expelling energy. - PositronWildhawk

I would love to excel in this subject. I think my brother could do with joining this class to... - Britgirl

Charms is the most useful branch of magic!

3 Transfiguration

Would very much enjoy this. I'd use it on my brother all too much. - PositronWildhawk

Could take Moody's approach and turn him into a ferret! - keycha1n

I would turn my brother into a toad - 2storm

I want to turn into a wolf.

4 Potions

I read the Half Blood Prince, I think I could do pretty well in this class... - keycha1n

I actually would really like to take potions. It reminds me of cooking, and I love cooking.

It reminds me more of Chemistry, which is good, but Physics is the best, by a long shot. - PositronWildhawk

Come on! Love, Luck? Best by far…

You get to see bumbling colored water - 2storm

5 Divination

It’d be my favorite - blackflower

This is 2, and Hermione Dropped out of this class. How is that possible?

Who hasn't thought about seeing into the future? - PositronWildhawk

It would be so cool to see in the future! - Minecraftcrazy530

6 Astronomy

I don't know how will the wizards use this knowledge knowing how easily their magic break physical laws. - Kiteretsunu

My favourite subject in real life! Not the best in the wizarding world though. - Goku02

Why put this down? You can already do this in the muggle world. - isoldeivens18

An interesting thing in both muggle and wizarding worlds. Sorry, I had to put this in first. I'm a nerd. - PositronWildhawk

7 Arithmancy

The closest thing to maths that they have. - PositronWildhawk

8 Herbology

went from really ugly to supa model. wanna know how? he used powalotion-- this comment has been marked as spam

9 Apparition

See ya! *flashes into thin air* - PositronWildhawk

10 Muggle Studies

I am a Muggle, LOL I don't want to study about myself. - Goku02

I know enough dear thanks! - pouria_mt

The Contenders

11 Care of Magical Creatures

Who wouldn't want to ride on a hippogriff? Or pet a unicorn? - NerdGirl

With Hagrid as the professor, and lots of cute little animals that will bite your head off if you look at them wrong, I see no reason not to love it.

It's so good

da animals

12 Ancient Runes

The Hogwarts equivalent of Latin/Greek.

I would love to take it at 3rd year - pouria_mt

13 History of Magic

I'd probably not get that far with it, but it would be a good class at first. - PositronWildhawk

Well I love history - 2storm

14 Flying Lessons
15 Dark Arts

Dark Arts is not only my favorite, but I believe it is the most important! It is too likely that you will be attacked by some evil creature to not take this class! Especially for Harry and all associated with him! GRYFFINDOR!

Well it existed... - pouria_mt

16 Duelling Club
17 Occlumency
18 Legilimens
19 House Elf Magic
