What You Can Do With a Theology Degree

Though the most obvious career choice may seem to be a minister or other spiritual leader, theology graduates can be found in a range of occupations. You may consider a career in parochial school teaching, fundraising, or community-based roles such as social work, counseling, or government policymaking.

No matter your professional path, a theology degree helps you understand the foundations of our culture, discern ways to honor your spirituality in the secular world, and grapple with the moral and ethical challenges that we all face. Lawyers, politicians, journalist, and other professionals also often consult with theology graduates for their insight and expertise in matters of religious diversity.
