Many Baylor students say that they were first attracted to Baylor because of the opportunities to nurture their faith. After taking the required Religion classes, some of these students realize they have a desire to learn more. Of course, a major in Religion can be excellent preparation for seminary, but there are many other options for students with this background.
In fact, Tim Copeland shares in his blog that a recent report from the American Association of Colleges and Universities highlights the skills that employers are looking for in their new hires: critical thinking, communication, and problem solving. Religion majors gain plenty of practice with these skills in their coursework. You can visit the website for the Department of Religion at Baylor to read about career possibilities with a Religion major, listen to a podcast with Dr. Doug Weaver, or review a list of courses that make up the major.
