After Graduation

Starting with a bachelor’s degree in religion, there are many places to go.

As an academic major in the humanities, the study of religion is like a history or English major: It imposes no limitations. But it also lends its own particular strengths to a number of different career choices.

Religion majors have successfully gone on to professional training in:

  • Christian ministry of all types
  • Business (particularly international business)
  • Counseling and social work
  • Education
  • Journalism
  • Law
  • Medicine

Others have moved directly into the job market, taking up positions in:

  • Event planning, hospitality or the service industry
  • Government, foreign service or the Peace Corps
  • Marketing and management
  • Museums and the arts
  • Nonprofit or non-governmental organizations
  • Publishing
