I received a relatively unorthodox degree from an art school. At the time I attended and graduated (which means that is what my diploma states) the program (and degree) was a Bachelor of Science in Visualizations.
This name was consistently confusing to nearly everyone (and still is, to potential employers and anyone else I happen to mention it to). It was so ambiguous and unclear that in fact the program itself struggled to define or explain it. Shortly after I graduated, they renamed the degree (but kept the same curriculum, required courses, etc) to Entrepreneurial Studies. This (in my opinion) is a little clearer in stating what the degree happens to involve.
My understanding is that because my diploma has it phrased as "Visualizations" this is what my degree technically is, and how I should represent it. That said, I feel that "Entrepreneurial Studies" is much clearer and better represents my education. Would it be acceptable to list it as such on my resume/CV?
(Being now several years into my career, prospective employers are much more interested in my work experience and pretty much don't care about my degree aside from the fact that I have one, so this question is mostly hypothetical. I was discussing college with a friend recently and ended up wondering about this)
