A major in Religious Studies provides you with a diverse set of skills and knowledge, preparing you for a variety of work environments. It is also excellent preparation for graduate or professional school, including both law and medical school. Some of our students choose to pursue seminary or divinity school.
When thinking about your career path, it’s important to remember that many things contribute to employability: well-chosen summer internships, level of academic performance, work experience, volunteering, involvement in campus leadership and organizational responsibilities, as well as a well-tended network of contacts. We encourage you to pursue these things early in your college years and consult with your academic advisor for advice on career planning and preparation. Make an early appointment with the Walter Center for Career Achievement, too—the career counselors there are aware of many opportunities that may be a good fit for you.
