In much the same way that relatively few English majors go on to become novelists or poets, not all Religion and Philosophy majors aspire to careers in ministry or higher education, though some do. Instead, the academic study of Religion and Philosophy at CBU prepares you for life and work in such diverse fields as secondary education, educational administration, law, religious education, counseling, journalism, library science, campus ministry, chaplaincy, social work, politics, public relations, and social service or non-profit work, to name only a few.
Students of Religion and Philosophy, like myself, are primarily trained in the proper uses of analysis and argumentation, and those skills are applicable in almost any field. My current work brings me into frequent contact with medical authorities, legal theorists, economists, business professionals, and elected officials, and I have never felt inadequately prepared or ill-equipped for such interactions. The skills I have gained are universally helpful and admired.
