Overview

Program Overview

  • B.A. World Religions Major offered by Ohio University cover Judaism, early Christianity, Greek and Roman religions, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. Each student chooses an area of specialization, and learns a foreign language connected with that specialization. Students in the world religions major have also majored in English, history, and sociology. 
  • World religions majors with a GPA of 3.5 or higher can complete a departmental honors thesis in one or two terms for 3-6 credit hours in addition to the regular requirements for the major. Preapproved application and interview required.

Opportunities Upon Graduation

  • The demand for people knowledgeable in the religions of this increasingly smaller globe is growing, and the United States is also becoming increasingly diverse religiously. Expertise in the study of a number of religious traditions benefits students preparing for careers in journalism, politics, and business. It can also be part of one's preparation for leadership in religious communities. Often pre-professionals are encouraged to pursue a broad liberal arts education in which world religions may be a significant component. 
  • Courses in world religions are also of interest to many graduate programs. Our graduates have gone on to further study in religious studies and theology graduate programs.  Outside academia, World Religions graduates have gone on to work abroad in the Peace Corps and for NGOs; others have become counselors and therapists; others have entered into business careers and work in government.
