Global Knowledge

Comparative Religion Majors are globalists, with specific expertise as historians, ethicists, analysts of specific world regions and/or international comparativists, depending on their choice of concentration of courses in our program.

Students intern at a wide variety of institutions, from the Asia Society and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to the American Medical Association Ethics Group in Chicago.

Professions that address a diverse population (such as medicine, education, public policy, law, marketing) and global professions (such as international relations, diplomacy, journalism, the arts and thousands of international businesses) are excellent places for our majors to apply their expertise.

Recent graduates earned positions at Saint Mark's Church in NYC andTeach For America, while others pursued graduate studies at Princeton Theological Seminary and our own Theological School.

Our professor was awesome, hilarious and incredibly involved. She made things really accessible. I learned more new stuff than I had in any other class, especially a lot about Buddhism and Hinduism. ”
