More about studying Religion at Augsburg and preparing for a career

The religion major is comprised of eight courses, five of which are electives.  The relatively low number of overall courses makes the Religion major ideally suited for double majors.  Many of our students pair a religion major with a major in psychology or communications or other complementary discipline.

The religion major provides strong preparation for graduate studies in theology, religious studies, sacred scripture, church history, and related fields.

The religion major prepares students to think critically, read analytically, write clearly, and speak confidently — sought-after skills that make our graduates attractive to a broad spectrum of employers and graduate schools.
