Thinking Religion: Should You Major in Religion?


Prof. Thomas Whitley and Sam Harrelson both have majors in religion from their respective colleges. However, their lives took different paths. This week, they examine whether or not a person should still major in Religion or Religious Studies during their undergraduate years. If so, what does the future hold for them?

  • What are the problems with equating the study of religion with an increase in critical thinking skills?
  • Why do Religion departments (and majors) do so poorly at marketing?
  • “Does the prospect of getting a job when you graduate concern you?”
  • What do you learn as a Religion major and how does that impact your life?
  • Do Religion majors ever get jobs?
