Studies in important world religions

Theology is a Greek word that translates to "the study of God." In academia, the study of theology typically pertains to the way people think about God, says Oxford University of England.

Theology degree programs offer study not only in Christian traditions, but in other major world religions as well.

Education and training in theological studies

Students can expect to gain a clearer understanding of the spiritual aspects of human existence. Religion obviously plays a large part in the coursework of theology degree programs, but by studying Christianity and other religions, you can gain a much deeper understanding of Western and Eastern history, literature, art and music. You can enrich your knowledge of literary analysis, language, social science and critical thinking by enrolling in some of the following classes:

  • Evolution
  • Faith and Reason
  • Divinity of Jesus
  • Creation
  • Essential of History

Many theology schools place a large emphasis on in-depth study of The Bible as well.

Careers in theology

Religious teaching in private and seminary schools or universities and working in the church are the two main career paths for students who earn theology degrees. However, there are many other career options available to you.

Oxford University found in a study of about 80 theology degree holders that many students worked in publishing and media, art, social work and politics.

There were 21,250 philosophy and religion teachers working in 2010, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, and colleges, universities and professional schools employed 87 percent of these teachers. Median annual wages were $62,330, and the top 10 percent earned $114,380.
