Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
If I am a transfer student, how do I know what credits have been accepted by the Department or by San Diego State University?
Can I get general education credit for Study of Religion courses I take if I am a Study of Religion major?
If I take RS 390A and RS 390B — Religious Experience in America — in fulfillment of the University’s “American Institutions” requirement, will those courses count toward the Study of Religion major as well?
This is perhaps the most frequently asked question we receive, since students and their parents are interested in the career outlook for RS majors and minors. Like other liberal arts majors, the RS major does not lead directly to a career, as do majors in professional programs such as Business or Journalism. But what liberal arts majors do get is a broad and extensive background in writing, critical thinking and analysis, and oral communication. These are skills which can be applied to any job or career. Thus, the RS major provides excellent pre-professional preparation for fields such as law, teaching, medicine, counseling, social work, conflict resolution, international business, foreign service, journalism, various ministries, or careers in public service or non-profit organizations.
What advantages are there to having a Double Major, with one of the majors being in Study of Religion?
