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.

Hope religion graduates have excelled in the following fields among others:

  • Christian ministry and mission
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Counseling and social work
  • News media and social media
  • Medicine
  • Secondary education
  • Library science
  • Law
  • Politics and government
  • Higher education: biblical studies, history, philosophy, religious studies

Graduates with religion as second major or minor attract the attention of graduate schools and employers looking for critical thinking, breadth of perspective, and cultural sensitivity and competence.
