Career Facts Religious Studies
The study of religion can lead to a career as a member of the clergy, a religious education director, or a counselor.
Beyond that, however, the study of world religions across space and time leads to a greater understanding of different cultures, people, and ways of thinking about the world and humanity's place in it. The study of one's own and other people's religion can both deepen faith and expand the horizons of what is meant by religion, spirituality, and humankind's relationship to the transcendent. It can help to answer the fundamental questions of humankind.
Students who want to become truly well-educated would do well to include the study of the liberal arts, including religion, in their educational plans.
