“When done right, the work of the humanities is the work of anti-racism…of undercutting assumptions and stereotypes about the people around us and bringing nuance to our perspectives, so that…we begin seeing the richness of our human experiences.”
(Simran Jeet Singh, “Why Universities–and the Rest of Us–Need Religious Studies,” Religion News Service, December 2020)
While some of our graduates go on to study religion or related fields in graduate school, most of them are equipped with their religion dual-major to find employment in fields that value analytic, research, reading, and writing skills, and an understanding of diverse perspectives from around the world. Most Brooklyn College religion students thus end up in careers in other fields, including law, business, medicine, education, teaching, social work, and public policy.
