A Religious Studies major is excellent preparation for work in a number of fields in which knowledge of religion is primary:
Religious Studies is a multi-disciplinary enterprise which develops in majors critical reading, writing, speaking, and thinking skills.
The study of religion involves work with other related and relevant subjects including language, psychology, folklore, folklife, history, sociology, philosophy, education, medicine, law, and social work.
Religious Studies is, therefore, excellent preparation for graduate school in any profession such as law, medicine, business, government, education, journalism, communications, or the arts.
For those who feel they possess a religious vocation, the Religious Studies major is an excellent preparation to become members of the clergy.
Over the past 10 years, alumni have entered graduate programs in religion studies at Harvard University, Yale University, Union Theological Seminar in New York City, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Drew University.
