Religious & Ethical Studies / Careers

The religious and ethical studies major prepares students for success by teaching them critical thinking skills, writing skills, and making them confident public speakers—skills that are useful in a wide variety of fields and disciplines. Our students have put these skills to use in graduate programs at nationally recognized universities, including:

  • Duke University
  • Emory University
  • Vanderbilt University
  • Wake Forest University

In addition, graduates have gone on to work at Credit Suisse and SAS Institute, and have pursued careers in ministry, nonprofit organizations, library science, occupational therapy and acting.
