If your job will require you to be sensitive to diverse people, courses in religious studies are for you!
Students who major or minor in Religion tend to go on in "people-oriented" careers such as social work, health care, psychology, law and public policy, journalism and communications, community organizing, museum work.
Students use the religion major or minor as an enhancement. Most careers require some kind of post-college training. Expertise in diversity is what will lift your application (for a job, for graduate school) above the rest – it is your extra "value-added" – something you bring that other applicants will not have.
