If Frank and Joe went to college, what subjects would they study and which colleges?

I'd say criminal science, and or law enforcement.

If I recall correctly, Frank and Joe visit a friend in college in Casefiles #114 Clean Sweep- I'm thinking maybe that book discusses possible majors for Frank and Joe? But I agree with Katie- criminal science and/or law enforcement seem like likely bets. Of course, in the 1995 TV show of The Hardy Boys, it indicated that Frank apparently went with a journalism degree or perhaps just bypassed college altogether and went straight to working for a newspaper, while Joe was shown to be in college- though I don't know if it ever indicated exactly what he was studying. I would have to rewatch some episodes to see- it's been a long while since I've watched this show.

Frank and Joe both went to college in "The Shattered Helmet" where they studied filmmaking. 

Then they also went to Police Academy in "Shield of Fear'.

The Shattered Helmet was for a case, if I remember.

I don't know if I'd consider the Police Academy college...and what book is Shield of Fear?

Shield of Fear is #91 in The Hardy Boys Mystery Stories- one of the Digests. :) 8)
Yeah, that's true- Frank and Joe have gone to college before undercover. I'm not sure that any of them would indicate their college plans though....but thanks for the reminder about those books. The Shattered Helmet is one of my favorites from the original 58.

No the Hardy's were not on a case, although they did get involved with a mystery.  But when "The Shattered Zhelmet" opens the boys are enrolled in a summer course at the college.

And Joe was in college in the 95 TV series.

Frank and Joe also went undercover at the  FBI Academy in Spies and Lies.

Interestingly enough, while the Frank and Joe were still in High School in the Casefiles, Nancy Drew had graduated. She never went to collage  during the Files though, even though Ned did. She did visit him at Emerson College a few times. She did go to  University  in the "Nancy Drew on Campus" series.

And Frank had gone through college in the 90's TV series, and Joe was in college in the series.

Frank and Joe attend an international summer school at Oxford University, in Strategic Moves.
