Career Opportunities

Most students study theology to prepare for a career in teaching or in key pastoral or administrative positions in religious ministry. Others plan to pursue graduate work in theology. Some students choose theology as a supplementary major, because theology's focus on the central questions of human existence complements and extends their commitment to their first major in science, sociology or psychology. Professional schools increasingly appreciate how such a balanced preparation enhances a candidate's profile.   Specific career options include:

  • Religious educator
  • Coordinator of youth ministry
  • Campus minister
  • Director of religious education
  • Pastoral administrator/associate
  • Adult education director
  • Director of liturgy
