What Do Theology Graduates Do?
Students finishing with a major in Biblical Studies or Theology, or the minor in Christian Thought, will find themselves equipped to move in a number of different personal and professional directions since they will acquire through these programs not only profession-specific competencies and knowledge, but also important life skills and habits that are transferable to a number of professional pursuits or advanced degrees. Previous majors have found themselves going on to graduate school or seminary, taking up posts in businesses and non-profit organizations, entering church ministry, or working in fields related to public service (social work, relief work, health care, etc.).
