With the cooperation of community agencies, institutions, or organizations and the supervision of a Religious Studies Department faculty member, students may pursue an internship in social service or with religion-affiliated institutions of various kinds.
A religious studies major is great preparation for a variety of careers including business, law, and medicine. Graduates of the department have pursued careers such as child/family therapist for Pro Behavioral Health in Boulder, Colo.; vice president for ResourceNet International; manager of pastoral care services for Carilion Health Systems; pastor at Long Branch Baptist Church in Charlotte, N.C.; mediator in the Center for Conflict Resolution in Chicago; vice president of a local Bank of America; and UNCG development officer.
Recent religious studies graduates have attended prestigious graduate programs at Princeton, Columbia, Duke, Emory, Harvard, Princeton Theological Seminary, Union Theological Seminary, University of Chicago, UNCG, Wake Forest, and Yale.
