What Can I Do With A Major In Religion?
Religion is the study of human beliefs, practices, and worship activities related to a supreme power or deity. Students studying religion as a major become familiar with many of the world's spiritual traditions, and learn to use a range of approaches-historical, textual, psychological, sociological, and anthropological- to examine the variety of religious experiences.
