Career College: Utah Theology Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in Utah offering Theology degrees. Do you want to studies important world religions? Theology shapes the history and the world we live in from politics to culture and social practices.

The Golden Spike linking the eastern and western segments of the Great Transcontinental Railway was driven into the railroad ties in Promontory Summit, Utah, linking East and West on May 10, 1869. And that's just one of the historic facts that will make your days at a Utah college or university interesting. Utah has a long and vibrant history, starting with tens of thousands of years of Native American settlement. The long wagon trains moving Americans west in the Gold Rush and beyond crossed Utah, and perhaps its most celebrated settlers were the Mormons, who found sanctuary at last in 1846, after many years of continued exile and oppression as they wandered across the country.

Today, the strong influence of the significant Mormon population makes Utah an industrious and self-reliant state, where neighbors look out for neighbors, and everyone does their best to make strangers feel welcome. Attending college in Utah is likely to be a memorable and valuable experience.

Utah Career Colleges: Theology Degrees

Why study theology?

A theology degree may sound like an antiquated course of study. You may be surprised to learn that theology is possibly one of the most relevant degree programs in modern times. After all, religion shapes the world we live in: From politics to culture and social practices. If you want to understand the modern world and its history, you have to understand religion. And that's what a theology degree can help you do.

What can I learn from a Theology program?

Theology is a demanding, challenging, stimulating academic subject that touches on a wide range of intellectual disciplines, such as:

  • philosophy
  • history
  • art
  • sociology
  • languages

Many theology programs focus on a specific religion, while others examine a range of faiths. Some theology programs are designed for students, who plan to follow a career in religious practice. These programs may include an internship or opportunities to get involved in the local community. Others are less practically focused on a specific career path.

Professions for theology majors

You don't have to be planning a career as a member of the clergy or a religious profession to choose theology as your major. A theology degree can provide you with skills that are in demand in many careers, such as:

  • Law
  • Education
  • Politics
  • Sociology
  • Management
  • Political science

In 2010, 42,820 people were employed in the clergy and 16,840 people were employed as Directors of Religious Activities and Education in the U.S.

Enroll in a Theology degree program and you can learn more about yourself and the world you live in, while preparing yourself for a rewarding future.
