Real-World Experience

The religious studies program offers you a wide variety of opportunities to work with professors outside the classroom, obtain real world experience, and become a more engaged, well-rounded member of the community. Below are just a few of the ways that you can become involved with work outside of your classroom studies at the University:


Internships provide real-world experience along with networking opportunities.

Independent Study

Exploring a specific research topic individually under the guidance of a faculty member can launch students on to exciting career paths.


Working with faculty members on research projects provides real world experience in not only research techniques, but also team collaboration, synthesis and analysis, and communication.
