The Religious Studies discipline focuses on the analysis and comparison of religious traditions using methods from a variety of disciplines. Students take religious studies courses to prepare for a major or to fulfill general education requirements in humanities or ethnic studies. With a bachelor's degree in religious studies, students pursue careers in law, business, public and political service, and education. A religious studies major also prepares students for graduate studies in the discipline and for professional seminary and divinity school.
