What Can I Do With This Degree?

A degree in religious and theological studies provides majors with fascinating, versatile and challenging coursework and gives them the opportunity to read, discuss and write about serious issues. Students explore the most important aspects of human life, sharpening their liberal arts skills in the process.

Employers from both for-profit and nonprofit companies are looking for employees who are smart, interesting and quick learners. While employees can be taught necessary technical skills, employers want them to have real exposure to ideas, different worldviews and the ability to speak, read and write effectively. This is precisely what the religious and theological studies degree offers.
