Religious studies does not necessarily entail the worship or adherence to a particular brand of faith, but rather it indicates the academic study of religion, often several different schools of belief at once. Students in this field can expect to delve into religious theory and history as it has related and interacted with the passage and progress of civilization throughout the ages. Those who have expressed a unique interest in philosophical themes, particularly a passion for the place of religion in human thought and understanding, are naturals to demonstrate an interest in this field of study. Students who would like to explore one faith in particular, and how it compares to other belief systems, are also encouraged to consider the major. Religious studies can indeed be used for people who are spiritually faithful to excavate their belief more thoroughly, yet the intent to proselytize is entirely dependent on the nature of a religious studies program as it is managed by a particular department or university system. 

Most students who choose to focus their academic schedules in the field of religious studies do so at the bachelor's degree level, though a gamut of degree opportunities are definitely available for the discipline. Pupils can anticipate to take classes in such subjects as Asian religious studies, Hindi, Buddhist, and Christian practices, the theology of freedom, the rhetoric of friendship, and potentially language classes in Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic. Careers that directly involve religious studies can provide salary compensation of a modest sum. Many of such careers take place in the sector of counseling, a career path which looks to enjoy highly increased employment into the future.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
