Theology and religious vocations aren't only about studying faith and religion, but also about devoting one's career and life to it. Read on to learn more about choosing a path dedicated to serving God.

Inside Theology and Religious Vocations

Theology entails the study of spiritual beliefs and practices. Theology and religious vocations programs train people to fulfill different roles in society, from education to counseling, with a spiritual perspective. Graduates from theology-related programs may become pastors, priests, missionaries, teachers and music directors, depending on their interests, training and level of expertise.

Education Information

Many colleges and seminaries offer degree programs related to theology at the bachelor's, master's, postgraduate certificate and doctoral levels. Though most programs focus on Christianity, programs based upon other religions, such as Judaism, as well as intercultural or interreligious studies, are also available. These programs can give students a wider understanding of the phenomenon of religion. Coursework includes Biblical studies, Christian history, ministry, ethics, philosophy and comparative studies of other religions.
