Getting a Job with a BA in Religious Studies or Humanities

A degree in religious studies or humanities will help you get a job in an organization, institution, or company that values cultural awareness and basic job skills rather than vocational training (which, while valuable, can soon be out of date or may force you to stay in a certain career path your whole life).

In particular, humanities and religious studies graduates gain impressive abilities in writing, researching, employing critical thinking, thinking creatively, speaking in public, working in groups, and communicating effectively; they are able to relate to people of different cultures, traditions, ethnicities, and linguistic backgrounds; and they understand the importance of religion and culture, social institutions, language, the arts, ideas, and history.

These skills are essential in adapting to and succeeding in an ever-changing social, cultural, and economic environment.
