You might think that it’s a bit early to be thinking about a career, but always keep in mind that in studying Religion you will be developing specific skills that will serve you well in a variety of jobs and professions. In every Religion class you take you are not only learning about a particular religious theme or tradition, but you are also developing the research, analysis, and oral and written communication skills that are the foundation of future professional success. These skills matter.
As you begin to think about what you might want to do with your Religion degree, watch for the opportunities to combine your classroom experiences with travel experience through courses or research. Make an appointment with the Undergraduate Advisor, or Carleton’s Career Services, which is here to help you know your options
